The 4th and 5th grade Otters embarked on their yearly adventure to Audubon Center of North Woods this week, for 3 days and nights of non-stop learning excitement. ACNW is an ELC (Environmental Learning Center) about 90 miles north of the Twin Cities and happens to be the Authorizer of our school. The "Big kids" of NSA take this trip each year. The Otters took part in classes taught by ACNW staff including Winter Survivor, Ojibway Hike, Team Challenge, Wildlife Signs, Orienteering, Raptors and so many things I can't even remember them all! They built shelters, learned to make a fire, use a compass and oh so much more. They enjoyed singing around a night-time campfire, learned about "Owling" and took a night time ice hike. Check out the Audubon Gallery to see pictures of the Otter's great adventure!
