Students visit oasis of learning in desert

For six days this spring, the Utah desert served as the classroom for 22 students and two teachers.

During their journey at the Canyonlands Field Institute Camp in Moab, the Lasallians learned about geology, water, and water safety while rafting down the Colorado River.

They also studied the desert environment, solved a problem through engineering design, and learned about the history of the Puebloans. The trip wasn’t all work, said English teacher and chaperone Victoria McDonald: They slept in teepees, prepared food, and, when they had time, played epic games of "Go, Fish."
