Former Alderleaf instructor and Wilderness Certification Program graduate, Michelle Peziol, just became the first female CyberTracker Track & Sign Evaluator in the United States! A tremendous accomplishment!

We can't say enough how proud and excited we are for Michelle! She set this challenging long-term goal for herself eight years ago when the Alderleaf program first inspired her to pursue a career with wildlife tracking.

After graduating AWCP, Michelle encouraged and empowered subsequent classes of Alderleaf students through her instructor role, then as a guest teacher during our field trips to visit the Teton Cougar Project where she has been working.

There's still time to apply for the 2017-2018 school year of the Alderleaf Wilderness Certification Program (AWCP) that begins September 5th!
