The Wilderness 50th Anniversary Committee is announcing National Wilderness Conference Youth Scholarships! The scholarships are to attend the Wilderness 50th National Conference in October, 2014.
Scholarships will be awarded to youth who demonstrate leadership or are working towards a leadership role in wilderness education, advocacy and community awareness.
Most of us venture into wilderness for relaxation and to remove ourselves from stressful environments. However, it may be impossible to avoid hazardous obstacles during your trip. Water crossings can be hazardous any time of year. Snow melting in the springtime will inundate streams with icy water, and a rain storm in any season can cause flash flooding. Foot bridges and crossings you may have safely navigated before could turn into a dangerous undertaking.
