Connecting Youth to Alaska's Wildlands
Alaska Geographic partners with school districts to encourage outdoor learning through teacher workshops and field trip support. Thanks to partnerships like the Chugach School District and the Chugach National Forest, hundreds of Alaskan youth play in, learn from, and care for our beautiful parks, forests, and refuges. Kayak-based stewardship expeditions and a boat-based research expeditions bring together enthusiastic and dedicated teens from around Prince William Sound for 10-day trips that included wilderness skills, restoration projects, and comradery. Unique to our programs, expedition alums are invited into ongoing mentorship programs that encourage leadership and further outdoor experiences.
