Forest School begins

Through the support of parents and community members, the Olympic Nature Experience (ONE) took form in the spring. Since, ONE Executive Director Sarah Salazar-Tipton and fellow board members have developed a outdoor school appropriately known as Forest School.

The school will include all-outdoor programs with a teaching style to allow students to learn, discover and challenge themselves at their own pace while immersed in an outdoor setting.

Salazar-Tipton recently completed her Forest Teacher training at Cedarsong Nature School in February and is eager to put her skills to use in the new program.

By allowing children the opportunity to be outside “they learn a lot about themselves and they make these intuitive leaps in understanding which can not be taught,” Salazar-Tipton said.

The first of the school’s program are to begin next week.

When: Dungeness Adventure Club Summer Camp will run June 10-12. Additional camps and programs available throughout the summer and school year.

Where: Dungeness River Audubon Center, 2151 W. Hendrickson Road

Cost: Three-hour program for $45 or four-hour program for $55.
