While in Level 6, students journey to Earthshine, a retreat located on LakeToxaway in North Carolina, for a three-day immersion in environmental science. Fieldwork at Earthshine sometimes means long days, hiking on uphill trails, and studying outside in weather that may not be ideal. Even though students may be cold, wet, soggy, and muddy, they are determined. While they may not be warm and comfortable, students are living their learning experience through fascinating explorations with experienced instructors. Indeed, it is a rare and special journey.
