- Kings Canyon Summer School Trip
- Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks: Grant Grove, Zumwalt Meadow, and Moro Rock
WildLink alumni from New Village Girls Academy helped mentor other students on a summer school field studies trip to Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.
While in the parks, the group went on several hikes through Zumwalt Meadow, the Grant Grove of giant sequoias, and Moro Rock. The WildLink alumni were called upon to help teach other students about "leave no trace" ethics and to be good role models in leadership, positivity, and perseverance. The group spent time journaling and reflecting and a highlight for the group was spending time together around the fire.
In the words of Carla, "I learned that nature is truly important and that it's our job to help protect it and to help preserve its beauty and wonders for many generations to come."
Stephie, a WildLink alumnus, commented, "My favorite parts are when we went on walks and we had time to ourselves because sometimes being alone with nature is all I need."
Monica, another alumnus, said, "I learned that nature is something so interesting and simple. I learned that I could enjoy myself no matter what the environment."
