Hiking Ecology

Group of students stands on pond bank for ecology class

Students learn about the ecosystem around them as they hike through the forest. They learn how to identify plants and animals, think critically about the world around them, and discuss the impact of forest fires. If desired, students can begin field notebooks to record their observations about the ecosystem, sketch plants and animals, and identify key adaptations different organisms have.

Lessons & Activities

Plants, animals, trails, sky, the lessons go as far as the group goes.

What People Are Saying

I loved my experience at Pali. In my time as an instructor, I was able to develop many skills in the classroom as a teacher and as a leader. I would highly recommend this position for anyone who would like to start a career in the Outdoor Education Industry.

Thank you so much for an incredible week. The kids are jazzed; parents are more jazzed. Your team is incredible, and the planning and execution for a top notch science/outdoor education/leadership camp is celebrated. We are so glad we found you.

Danielle V., Teacher

Impressive! This is our first time to Pali. I have taken students to four other SoCal science camps and I would highly recommend Pali and plan to return next year.
