Saunters 2016

Saunters 2016 is in the books. The weather cooperated, the students sauntered, and nature taught us many new things. Each morning lesson previewed the day's hiked, revealed more facts about Wisconsin's amazing Ice Age National Scenic Trail, and provided background information about our special guest: John Muir.  During the day, we trekked through a diverse and unique set of segments while also being able to go off trail for a bit before returning to school, downloading our pictures writing about our experiences, and having natural play time at the school's outdoor learning area. Here's just a tiny portion of our adventures.
