Master Educators lead the over night pack trip, for Group 3, into the wilderness, teaching the seven principles of “Leave No Trace” hiking, tracking and survival.

Each participant carries their own backpack with sleeping bag and minimal essentials.

Leaving at dawn, the students will “walk lightly” across the land; through valleys and forests that are rich with wild animals such as antelope, bighorn sheep, deer, elk, bobcat, porcupine, badger, coyote, and prairie dogs. They will be able to see for miles as they hike up steep inclines to the tops of ridges where they will be honored by visits from soaring eagles and hawks.

At dusk, the campers set up camp for the night and make dinner. The night sky will come alive as the students sit around the campfire roasting marshmallows, and telling stories.

The next day, they journey back to base camp continuing their lessons in tracking and survival; herbal studies, identifying medicinal plants and herbs, their uses and applications.
