Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks

are located in the southern Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. Sequoia has some of the largest trees in the world, and it hosts the highest mountain, Mt. Whitney at 14,495', in the contiguous 48 states. The park also has over 100 marble solution caves and over 2,600 alpine lakes.
We will explore the huge trees and the Sierra Nevada high country during a strenuous trip that will include a 3-night backcountry experience spanning over 20 miles of hiking. During this educational outing, we will meet with several National Park employees who will help us understand the complicated connections between humans and the environment.
