Ward Lake Outdoor School Week was a grand success, teaching approximately 200 fifth and sixth grade students from seven different Ketchikan schools about the Forest using outdoor activities. Happening for four days, May 8 – 11, 2018, the event was run by a group of Forest Service volunteers from the Tongass National Forest. A wildlife biologist ran the Predator & Prey station, a fisheries biologist took kids to a nearby stream to learn about aquatic life, foresters taught orienteering along trails with compasses, and a member of the Ketchikan Indian Community presented information on shellfish.
