Our backcountry journeys are dedicated to providing area youth with the chance to build lifelong relationships to nature – through adventure, science education, team‐building, and personal discovery.
Impact of work:
Jane Ferguson Wilderness Adventures provide unique opportunities for area youth to experience multi-day, expedition-style adventures in the magnificent Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness. In 2017, 20 youth participants will enjoy hands on learning about science and ecology- exploring everything from aquatic creatures, to geology, to wildlife. They’ll also have the chance to build self confidence, practice leadership skills, and finally, to weave a richer sense of stewardship with the natural world. Most of all, Jane Ferguson Wilderness Adventures offer the chance simply to have fun!
Purpose of fundraising:
Each year, we continue to fulfill our mission statement by providing a unique experience in the wilderness. To do so, we rely on fundraising to provide scholarships for students, purchase updated gear so that participants remain safe and comfortable, and hire knowledgeable instructors who lead and educate. Because of the generous donations from community members, Jane Ferguson Wilderness Adventures can continue to provide a one of a kind experience for area youth.
