Young Ambassadors for Wilderness: Training Lifelong Leaders
WWA has just wrapped our third year of our Young Ambassadors for Wilderness (YAW) program with great success thanks to our highly engaged youth participants, our talented volunteer lesson leaders, and enthusiastic community support from local businesses and agencies.
This year's YAW lessons and outings included nature sketching, Native American land stewardship, meditative practices to unplug in nature, a 4-day backpacking trip through the Cloud Peak Wilderness, many day hikes in recommended wilderness and other public lands, and geological history encompassing many of Wyoming’s public wild places, from the Tetons to Devils Tower.
Your annual donations to YAW enable us to continually augment the programming and teach more youth how to advocate for our wild lands. Thank you! We look forward to next year's program and plenty more wild lessons and adventures.
