- Yosemite National Park
Six students spent two weeks in Yosemite exploring the variety of careers that exist here, learning about the lifestyle of a national park resident, giving back to the park through volunteer service, and gaining valuable professional skills.
Students from 2012's "Team Spidey" hailed from Los Angeles, New York, and the Central Valley. They bonded over games of basketball, soccer, and playing cards, as well as through music and shared meals at the Yosemite Lodge.
Highlights for the course included discovering new historical artifacts with Yosemite's fire archaeologist, dismantling inappropriate fire rings in the Wilderness, meeting with the park superintendant and deputy superintendant, going on patrols with Wilderness, Law Enforcement, and Wildlilfe rangers, and sunrise on the last day at Tunnel View.
