Redwoods Tree Climbing
Join Cornell Tree Climbing Institute staff for the experience of a lifetime - climbing some of the largest trees on the planet! During senior week we will travel to the western slope of the High Seirra mountains of California.We'll spend the week assisting the UC Berkeley Department of Forest Ecology with Giant Sequoia restoration and ecology research. You will learn the basics of roped tree climbing, including ascending, moving around in the canopy, rappelling - even moving from tree to tree without returning to the ground. We will stay in a rustic mountain house with electricty, running water, and hot showers. All gear, instruction, food and lodging, and on-ground transportation is included in the course fee. After receiving CONFIRMATION that the course will run, students should book flights to arrive at the Fresno airport on the morning of May 27th and depart the same on the afternoon of June 3rd.
