Educating eco-warriors

    Wilderness Awareness School
    USA (Duvall)

    Hoary old cynics are hard to turn into eco-warriors. The Wilderness Awareness School, a non-profit environmental education organisation founded in 1983, gets in young, providing a massive range of short and long courses and classes in the great outdoors aimed at connecting children and families with the natural world.

    Adult courses provide experiential training in wilderness survival, wildlife tracking, wild edible plants courses and bird languages, among other things. Youth courses revolve around camps, exploration and nature-focused play. As the school continues to grow, it relies on donations and volunteers as well as course fees.
