Each year, GVP students and staff take an overnight trip to either the beach or mountains to learn about ecology and grow as a community. This year, 32 students trekked to the Wahsega 4-H center in Dahlonega, Georgia. Amidst the rain and mud, they took classes on reptiles and amphibians, insects, and benthic stream invertebrates. We learned forest ecology on hikes through dripping trees and saw a waterfall. A highlight of the trip was the archery range! Not even the cold or pouring rain could stop GVP students from having an amazing time together.
