WALDPORT Fifth and sixth graders from Crestview Heights School spent two days in the great outdoors in May, hiking and learning at Beaver Creek during Outdoor School.

Students learned about watersheds and estuaries, and the role that humans and wildlife have on water at the outdoor classes on May 22 and 23.

Fifth grade teacher Faith Forshee, a member of the Lincoln County School District Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) program, wanted to bring the outdoors into the classroom this year, and hopefully for many years to come.
