October 4 is the application deadline for Paso Robles High School students. That’s if they want to take part in an upcoming trip to Santa Cruz Island, one of the Channel Islands. The trip is part of a Paso High program called the Fields Studies Collaborative. The FSC brings students to unique places to conduct real-world research and learn from the environment, and from each other.
