Homer Flex students and staff thank the Homer Foundation for the grant given to us from the Homer Incentive Trust Donor-advised Fund. The money supported students on a two-day field trip to Yukon Island and Kasitsna Bay Lab as part of a unit on nature literacy in their science and language arts classes. Students learned to kayak through a tour with True North Kayak Adventures around Yukon Island. At Kasitsna Bay Lab, students built underwater remote-operated vehicles, learning about robotics in the marine world. There were also several nature hikes, fostering an appreciation of the natural world around us.
We would never have been able to afford this valuable learning experience without the continued support through the Homer Foundation and the Homer Incentive Trust Fund.
