“Without continuous hands-on experiences, it is impossible for children to acquire a deep Intuitive understanding of the natural world.”
Robins C. Moor and Herb H. Wong
When I stopped and looked at the last ten years of my life, I saw a century of outdoor exploration and learning had taken place. From Guiding in the mountains of Wyoming, backpacking the Pacific Crest Trail and serving on ‘Search and Rescue’ I had made outdoor adventure and exploration my continuing education.
I am excited to bring new outdoor experiences and learning to IACS and look forward to our growth and adventures. It takes a community to educate and raise our upcoming generations. As we get outside, build and explore, it takes more,eyes, ears and hands then I have, please contact me if you are interested in volunteering and joining in the fun.

We will round out the semester with an in depth study of First Aid and CPR, I am proud to be able to offer this certification for our young community member. I believe that our middle school students are not to young to save a life.
