Nature Bridge

In conjunction with NatureBridge Golden-Gate, the Orchard 6th grade teachers have developed a program of hands-on scientific exploration in the Golden Gate National Recreation area. This overnight experience provides a safe, fun, and exciting addition to Orchard 6th graders regular academic program at school.
