FVCS Summer Program Support

Program support funds were used to supplement program development, pre-class planning, and program operations. These programs also took place outside and incorporated the local flora and fauna of the KMTA area. Explorations included biking the Girdwood to Bird Point bike path, local bike trails throughout Girdwood, and the Trail of Blue Ice in Portage, AK. Hands on games, useful scientific exploration tools such as magnifying glasses, and most importantly 11 activity kits purchased through NatureWatch; were used to make lesson plans for the summer programs. Each of the adventure camps were built on the philosophy of place-based education.
