Sít’ Eetí Shaanáx (Glacier Valley) Elementary School.
This was the third school Discovery sent a naturalist to, after Harborview (me) and Mendenhall River School (Dave Lubin). For 30 years since, the forest framing Jordan Creek [noTN?] at the foot of Thunder Mountain has been Steve Merli’s office. Thousands of 3rd-to-5th-graders have had their first rich off-trail experience in these woods.
In the early 1990s, a freshly minted “Discovery Foundation” (our name, back then) offered teacher workshops throughout Juneau School District. Overview materials from those workshops are described and linked in Nature near cbj schools. Or drill down to these content pages for a pdf & pptx specific to this pair of Valley schools.
