Students, parents and teachers comb tidepools looking for marine life. About 45 students were at at Camp Colman in Pierce County’s Key Peninsula Thursday, for an Outdoor/Environmental Education program. After years of a decline in enrollment, the Marshall Alternative Program, which was once a highly sought after alternative middle school program in the Olympia School District, underwent a big makeover. It’s now called CSI, which stands for Citizen Science Institute, and includes weekly “field investigations” for students.
