Eighteen students and faculty from Aldo Leopold High School in Silver City, New Mexico, will be staying at our campus from Monday, April 16th until Wednesday, April 18th. During this time, we will have the opportunity to meet and collaborate with students from a like-minded school that shares many elements with Sky Islands’ program, such as an integrated, interdisciplinary curriculum, an environmental focus, and a hands-on approach to learning. We will be taking hikes together, engaging in community service projects on campus, and hosting an interstate chili cook off! This is an exciting opportunity to begin cultivating a relationship with yet another “island” in our larger archipelago, and we welcome our guests and look forward to learning about each other’s programs and sharing our experiences.
Pictures from the trip can be seen here!
