Science at Camp Wa-Ri-Ki
Articles: Science at Camp Wa-Ri-Ki
Kiwanis Camp Wa-Ri-Ki’s 22-acres of natural grounds along the Washougal River in the scenic Columbia Gorge area is ripe for environmental science educational opportunities. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife runs a hatchery operation just down the road from the Camp. At a recent “Nature Explore” event, one of the school science teachers helping the kids learn, remarked on how ideally suited the Camp is for outdoor science activities. He proposed a contest to name species of flora and fauna in the Camp area and explained that the the contest would be long lived because there is such a range of plant life at Wa-Ri-Ki.
So we’re preparing a series of articles about the science opportunities at Camp Wa-Ri-Ki here. And, we’d like to hear from you if you’re a Science Teacher or just want more information about Camp Wa-Ri-Ki science learning activities.
