May your holidays be filled with magic, music, and joy!


Twenty years ago, a small group of conservationists and educators in the Swan Valley had a vision to provide students with a different kind of education experience - one that would put them in the heart of one of the world’s most diverse classrooms so they could further their conservation studies by doing, seeing, and touching instead of just reading. Since then, over 400 students have participated in our college field programs immersed in the Crown of the Continent ecosystem, expanding their knowledge, building relationships, and seeing the world through a new lens. We know from the success of our alumni that experiential education results in more effective conservationists, scientists, wildlife managers, and educators.

Give the gift of education this holiday season by supporting our education programs and joining our 20th anniversary $20,000 fundraising challenge!  Visit for details.
