Wilderness Arts & Literacy

Students in the Wilderness Arts and Literacy Collaborative participate in academic courses that use outdoor experiences as the integrating framework. Hiking and camping trips expose inner city, low-income students to wilderness areas they may never have visited otherwise. They connect these experiences back to students' city lives through projects such as habitat restoration at a neighborhood park, a school recycling program, and environmental education presentations to other classes.
