We are very excited to announce that we are currently accepting applications for scholarships available for two (2) Wichita area educators.

Nestled in the beautiful Bridger-Teton National Forest near Jackson, Wyoming, the American Wilderness Leadership School (AWLS) provides the perfect atmosphere for educational programs. Established in 1976 with the vision of providing educators with a useful hands-on experience that they can bring home to their classrooms, AWLS has provided an accredited wildlife management program for 5,473 teachers who reach more than a million students annually, and a challenging experience for1,338 students.

The school offers six teacher sessions and one student session for ages 16-18. A registration fee of $900 covers meals, lodging, and round-trip ground transportation to and from the Jackson, Wyoming, airport.

John and Alane Wolner, Colorado: "The program was obviously initiated and managed with teachers in mind.From the hands on use of firearms, archery and lab skills to the curriculum instruction on Project Wild and Project Wet, we were shown how to incorporate a variety of approaches withour own students at our respective schools.It was very nice to work with a rich mix of teachers from elementary to secondary since the two of us represent both areas.We both found the activities we were involved with will be very useful in our classrooms.Most of all, we would like to thank you for the opportunity that reminded both of us that experiencing the natural world should and will be incorporated into the preparation of our youth for the lives they will lead as well rounded adults."
