Pacific Crest Trail presentation

By Bénédicte Brouder

This morning, 5th to 8th graders enjoyed a presentation in the auditorium from Environmental Studies Major College Graduate Thomas Wheeler.

Tom spoke about his experience thru-hiking the full length of the Pacific Crest Trail. His message focused on the personal takes in took away from the experience: detachment from many emotions (fear, exhilaration, wonder), determination, resilience, and inner peace. He also pointed out the effect of climate change on the trail and what we can do protect it.IMG_0398 IMG_0399
