Adventures in the Wilderness

Adventures in the Wilderness

The Adirondack guide of yesteryear was woods-wise and independent; a skilled hunter, fisherman and cook; and a shrewd judge of character. Students explore the life, skills and work of these intrepid characters and compare the 19th century woodsman to today’s guides. Customized wilderness programs are available for grades K-12, are about two hours long, and may accomodate up to 25 students per session.
