Remember the excitement of going on a field trip in school or with an after-school group? Getting out of the classroom and out into the real world is so invigorating and really puts the lessons in perspective.
Wilderness Ventures works with schools, scout programs and other educational institutions to bring classroom lessons into perspective with community service projects and nature exploration.
A history lesson on Native Americans can really hit home when students work on a Navajo reservation and get to learn culture straight from the people. Geography of the United States looks great on a map, but actually hitting the Grand Tetons puts tectonic plates into perspective.
If there are specific areas that the group wants to know about, the group leaders can customize a trip with ample pre-departure information and other educational materials.
