Wilderness Leadership Experience
Infinite Legacy offers 3 week outdoor leadership experiences in wilderness areas throughout the western United States. They start with an intense week of leadership and outdoor skills training and project planning. Then transition into two weeks performing their project in the wilderness. These excursions are designed to provide a fun, challenging, and real life experimental laboratory experience for young and experienced leaders alike. These trips offer students the opportunity to test and experiment with the communications and leadership concepts that they learn in the classroom. On each trip students complete a project for the forest service, the park service, NOAA, or a research group. Projects like trail building, environmental monitoring, GIS survey and many more give the students a sense of accomplishment along with their leadership experience.
