On April 27th 2000, the Camp Internet Kimbark Elementary School class went on their Camp field trip to Andreas Canyon and Palm Canyon in the Agua Caliente Desert. The students took a guided tour of both canyons and learned much about the desert ecosystem and the native Cahuilla Indians who lived there.
