Discovery Trips

“The care of the Earth is our most ancient responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope.” -Wendell Berry

Every other year, EMHS offers students the opportunity to participate in interested in a month-long, cross-country group learning experience about land and water resources. Students who have completed 10th, 11th or 12th grade apply to join approximately 25 other students and a team of leaders for this life-shaping experience which usually lasts much of the month of June.

The June 2019 excursion will be led by Lee Good, EMHS science teacher, who joined previous Discovery trips in 2011 and '13 and led trips in 2015 and '17. Additional faculty and staff, a cook and a nurse will round out the leadership team. Applicants from outside the school are welcome to apply to join the trip. Read more.
