  • Study wolves and other animals in their natural environment
  • Search for signs and tracks of wolves

  • Connect with their natural environment – and with other teens who share their interests

Our Instructional team features:

  • A 1:8 staff-student ratio
  • Our most experienced, Wilderness First Aid & CPR certified instructors
  • A director with extensive backcountry experience
  • Additional adult support through our adult apprentices, whose class will be joining us for the expedition
  • Staff trained as Coyote Mentors, a widely-respected educational philosophy developed at the Wilderness Awareness School
  • Compassionate educators who encourage each teen’s respect for self, others and nature

Important Notes

Airport Shuttle: Transportation is available to and from SeaTac airport for an additional charge. Please see Registration Information for more details.

Below is a photo from one of our motion-sensing cameras during our 2017 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.

Please note that students will either need to be fully vaccinated OR test negative for COVID-19 immediately prior to each overnight/expedition. At this time, we are not able to say whether masks will be required during the Summer of 2022. Please be prepared for masks to be required OR to be optional. We will follow State and County guidance as it is required. We strongly encourage all students who are eligible to get vaccinated. Our staff and volunteers fall under the Washington State COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate.
