Thanks to a grant provided by STARS, the 36 second grade students at Edmonds Elementary will have the opportunity to explore local forest habitats. Students will hike to Yost Park for hands-on experiences with nature that will support their Animal Relationships Unit in science. Students will enjoy lunch in the park and receive a guided tour of Yost Park, learning all about the different habitats it provides for creatures. 

The 2nd graders will be able to see the mixed stands of Western red cedar, red alder, big-leaf maple, western hemlock trees and other plant life. They will also be able to have a chance to discover numerous insects, amphibians, and even salmon in its lower reaches. Students may also get a glimpse of resident and migratory birds. This local Discovery Program is through The City of Edmonds Parks, Recreation and Human Services.
