IEE Fall Term




FallThe Fall Expedition is the culmination and preview of the entire trimester. It is a time when we achieve full integration of all subject areas. The students are able to make connections between Science, Geography, English, and Outdoor Recreation. It is also when we physically are able to see the upper level of the Deschutes Basin and starts our move to the Columbia following Whychus Creek to the Deschutes. The Fall Expedition is in the Three Sisters Wilderness, starting and finishing at Pole Creek Trail head.
