It’s because of wolf tracking that I found (even if it only comes in small waves) true inner peace and satisfaction, both within myself and the natural world.

My son said that he felt "whole" when he was at camp, spending time outdoors and making deep connections with staff and campers.

Below is a photo from one of our motion-sensing cameras during last year's expedition. We were able to report to Fish and Wildlife that there were 4 pups in the pack we were tracking (they did not know before we told them!). Students helped decide where to place the camera.
