Nikiski Elementary

Posted: Wednesday, September 17, 2003

The sixth-grade class camped overnight at the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge's Outdoor Education Center near Sterling. The students studied the Leave No Trace program with refuge rangers, had fun at night around the campfire, hiked the Kelly Lake trail and cooked one-pot meals on the trail together. Special thanks goes to the parent volunteers who drove, camped and hiked with Mrs. Kendall's students.
