Program Description

How has water shaped Lynn Canyon Park? Travel back in time to discover the powerful forces that created the landscape we see today in Lynn Canyon. Students will embark on a hike to see geological features and processes in action. The program focuses on the effects of running water on watershed geomorphology. We will also observe landscape features shaped by glaciation. During the walk, students will have the opportunity to apply their knowledge through hands-on soil testing and stream velocity measurements. This program works well for classes studying earth science, geology, and geography.
