Join Cornell Tree Climbing Institute staff for the experience of a lifetime - climbing some of the largest trees on the planet! Each spring we will travel to the western slope of the High Sierra mountains of California.We'll spend a week assisting the UC Berkeley Department of Forest Ecology with Giant Sequoia restoration and ecology research. Students will learn the basics of roped tree climbing, including ascending, moving around in the canopy, and rappelling. Students will also have the opportunity, weather permitting, to sleep overnight in the top of the trees.  We will stay in a rustic mountain house with limited facilities. 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 28th and depart the same on the afternoon of June 6th. For more information contact Mark Holton at or 607-254-2798.  Community participants can enroll by calling 607-255-6183.
