• Expedition: May 19-22, 2006
  • Reedly High School Generation Green
  • King's Canyon National Park

Petit Pinson and Stephanie Strickland of the Sequoia Natural History Association's SEKI WildLink program had the privilege of spending three days with six students and two chaperones from Reedly High School's Generation Green club. Higher than normal water levels in creeks and the still-lingering low snow made Redwood Canyon in Kings Canyon National Park the perfect setting for this EDventure. We traveled low enough to avoid snow, crossed a few creeks with the help of fallen giant sequoias, visited the Hart tree, and saw the dogwood trees in full bloom. We had two days of glorious weather and woke to an enormous thunderstorm on the third day. Rather than spend the day in our tents, we chose to hike out. This allowed us the opportunity to visit the General Sherman tree and the Giant Forest Museum to learn more about the giants we had just been sleeping with. Thanks go out to Fabian Garcia, the Generation Green Coordinator, and all who helped to organize this trip.
