Sky Ranch recognizes that learning is extremely successful when it's fun and exciting! In our ORIENTEERING class, students have an amazing adventure while learning practical skills as they:

  • Learn basic compass skills, including the difference between Magnetic North and True North, while finding hidden clues.
  • Become field ecologists and conduct a plot survey.
  • Identify each tree species within 10 meter x 10 meter plot.
  • Measure the tree circumference to analyze growth and understand the history of the ecosystem.
  • Construct a mathematical model to estimate the number of trees in Sky Forest, using their sample data.
