Our eighth-graders are going to Arizona this year for the annual 8th Grade Service Trip. They will travel to the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge, in the high desert (over 3600 ft) in southern Arizona, not far from Tucson. Located in the Sonoran desert, the terrain, ecology and natural history of the area will give them ample opportunity for exploration and field studies of what will be, for all of the students, a completely new and surprising ecosystem. The wildlife, plants, mountains and climate are all beyond what nearly all of them have experienced before.
