And that's a wrap! The 2015 WILD Summer Program has come to an end and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our participants and partners who helped make this summer a success!! This summer was packed with excitement, meaningful hard work, and numerous learning opportunities. By the end of the summer, this group  of youth learned about environmental justice issues that they see in their community. From the yearly camping trip at Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie Forest, to hiking at a new forest at the Olympic National Forest, to learning about fair trade at Theo's Chocolate (and of course, while sampling some chocolate :p), to experiencing a historic walking tour with the Wing Luke Museum, to fundraising money for WILD at the Natsumatsuri Festival and to working with children at the Danny Woo Garden -- this group experienced it all (because like they said, just do it)!

WILD 2015 Summer Youth, we are very proud of you and the hard work you put in this summer!!

Summer Program Youth!


These WILD youth did AMAZING work this summer engaging with environmental justice issues and learning about healthy communities! 

WILD's 7 week intensive summer program included two 4-5 day camping trips and several civic engagement projects. From camping, hiking, and BLAZING trails in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie Forest to gardening, cooking food, photography projects and working with children in the International District -- WILD youth did it all! 

We are so proud of their accomplishments! 

Check out WILD Youth at Glacier on a 5-day stewardship project! This camping trip consisted of restoring disperse recreation sites, maintaining trails near Heather Meadows Visitor’s Center and conservation education.
