Wilderness Inquiry's "Canoemobile" visits Cosumnes River Preserve
Read about an Unforgettable Paddling Field Trip at Cosumnes River Preserve.
Exploring the Cosumnes River
Galt 6th Grade and McCaffrey ASES classes explored the Cosumnes River by canoe. With support from Wilderness Inquiry, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, and the Cosumnes River Preserve, students learned important ecological concepts and observed a variety of wildlife. Paddling the river by canoe builds on the multiple and ongoing Kindergarten through 8th Grade outdoor education and project based service learning activities on the Preserve. The canoe and river exploration also compliments the Sly Park Environmental Education Program.
Wilderness Inquiry was founded in 1978 and is based in Minneapolis. Its mission is inclusivity and access to the outdoors for people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities.
This GJUESD partnership with Cosumnes River Preserve has expanded to provide all 6th Grade classes in the district with a canoeing experience on the Cosumnes River.
