About This Activity

Nestled between mountains and volcanoes, rivers and the Puget Sound, Olympia is the perfect place to observe some of the most diverse geologic terrain in North America. Wa-Ya outdoor school is going to explore the science and outdoor adventure behind rivers and rocks of our favorite places. Campers will learn about plate tectonics and geologic formations from volcanos to glaciers and the dynamic processes of our river systems. Rivers in the Pacific Northwest provide so much life. Many cultures and communities depend on healthy rivers. The Deschutes River crosscuts glacial and basalt deposits in the Olympia area, and provides a refreshing opportunity to see these formations exposed in the streambanks. Campers will learn adventure skills from exploring Washington riverways, hiking and scrambling in Capitol Forest, and testing their skills at rock climbing in the safety of an indoor climbing gym. We will also visit Capitol State Forest Mima Mounds, Tenino Quarry, Bayshore Preserve, and learn the big picture of how rivers move land and create land formations through erosion. They are important to our environment, economy and our everyday lives and provide vast habitats for many organisms.
