BENEFITING: WINTER WILDLANDS ALLIANCE
SnowSchool — a national program of non-profit Winter Wildlands Alliance — provides opportunities for 32,000 kids across 16 states to engage in experiential, on-snow education programs, to learn about winter ecology, watersheds, snow science, and the impact of changing climates. Each winter, at more than 60 different sites, K-12 students and teachers venture out on snowshoes as part of a fun and educational science-based field trip. Over 50% of participants are underserved, and a majority are first-time snowshoers!
Winter Wildlands Alliance works year-round with grassroots and other organizational partners nationwide to establish new SnowSchool sites and to help bring this important experience to the communities and students that need it most.
