Our students have begun their nine-month journey to become stewards, survivors, naturalists, and trackers. This week half the class is on a field trip to the Oregon Dunes to study wildlife tracking, plant identification, coastal dune ecology, and learn new survival skills; while the other cohort learns bow-drill fire-making, survival shelters, and navigation.
Please give a big warm welcome to all of our new students in the Alderleaf Wilderness Certification Program of 2013-2014. We're excited for another great year! Stay updated on their progress on the Alderleaf Blog.
The application period for the 2014-2015 school year is open.
