EXPLORE THE NATURAL WORLD

Science treks are designed for all students at Walden (K-12) and their families and friends. The purpose is to expose participants to the world of science around them. Most of the time the adventure correlates to what is going on in Mr. Gary Webb's science class. The seminal work of Henry David Thoreau from which our school derives its name –Walden–promotes a reverent appreciation for nature and the wholesome benefits of simply taking a walk in the woods. We believe the Walden Science Treks pay homage to our ideals of celebrating transcendental philosophy and curiosity in discovering new things about the fascinating natural world.
