Smith Nature Center
The Smith Nature Center is home to dozens of snakes, lizards, and other creatures. Here, students and campers get to see, touch, and even hold animals they’ve only seen on TV or read about in a book.
Boeing Ecology Center
Completed in 2005 thanks to grant from Bill Boeing, the Ecology Center offers Outdoor Education students an opportunity to directly study the flora and fauna in the acquatic environment of Pathfinder’s Lied Lake.
The facility includes an array of microscopes, a computer and modern teaching aides, allowing staff naturalists to employ hands-on teaching techniques. Students collect samples in and around the lake and return to the lab to analyze the materials, take notes and prepare charts and graphs outlining their findings.
