Last Monday our 7th-10th grade Water Scholars from Española began our week in the best manner possible- by hiking and exploring a new place outdoors!
We headed into a canyon near Abiquiu to seek out pinon and juniper trees and check out some of New Mexico’s unique geology.
We found some gorgeous rock formations and a mini arch.
After a weekend of clouds and rain, everybody enjoyed being out in the sun.
We also discussed pinon and juniper trees and their importance to this ecosystem, as well as to our lives.
After lunch, we filled out our ecosystem discovery worksheets and compared this area to the last place we visited.
We had a fantastic hike, and we can’t wait for our next trip with these wonderful students!
