The adventurous group spends about half of their time in the classroom, and the rest is dedicated to field trips, environmental service opportunities, and laboratory efforts. In the past six months their experiential study has included trips to the Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge, LA County Joint Water Pollution Control Plant, Ballona Wetlands, Catalina Island, and Cabrillo Beach. Up next? The San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant, SA Recycling, and Mono Lake.
