Living Arts Kinetic Experience (L.A.K.E.) is an interdisciplinary environmental education program for urban youth at Leonard Lake Reserve in Northern California. Participants are given a unique opportunity to learn new life skills, practice teamwork, and become more environmentally aware. Stewardship, cooperation, and observation are central themes in our interactive curriculum as we explore the outdoors in a safe yet challenging environment. The 3840 acres of scenic terrain features old growth redwood forests, a pristine fresh water lake, oak grassland hills, and historical Native American sites.
