She’s off for her school overnight trip! She handled all of her own packing and I am fully confident that means she’ll have at least 95% of the things she really needs. Girlfriend is on top of it! #urchinadventures #montessorikids #overnightfieldtrip #cascademountainschool ...

Last week marked the end of our Mountain to Valley summer camp! For two weeks, students conducted meaningful ecological research while farming, backpacking, mountaineering, and camping. We hope that they left connected to themselves, with new skills and friends, and inspiration to become positive leaders and change makers in our world! #mtadamsinstitute #cascademountainschool #mountaintovalley #mtadams #troutlakevalley #highschoolcamp #science #stewardship ...

Went back to the man made habitat this morning to count Oregon spotted frog eggs. In 7 days the amount of eggs in one area almost tripped and it’s still been we’ll below freezing at night. I’d say this has been totally successful for the Oregon spotted frogs!! Hopefully they flourish here this summer. #frogstuff #frogman #frogs #oregonspottedfrog #wildlifehabitat #wildlifebiology #americorps #vetswork #mtadamsinstitute #troutlake #mountainlife #giffordpinchotnationalforest ...

This week is Americorps week. For 25 years now Americorps members have been serving communities and preserving our public lands across America. I would like to take this day to thank Americorps and the Mt Adams institute for giving me the opportunity to serve with the US Forest Service and help preserve our national forests for future generations to enjoy. #dayofthea #americorps #mtadamsinstitute #usforestservice #giffordpinchotnationalforest #mtadams #troutlake #vetsworkenvironment #vetswork #optoutside #pnwlife #exploremore #staywild #keepitwild #mountainvibes #theoutbound #wildernessculture #discoverearth #exploremore #stayandwander #welivetoexplore #earthpix #chooseadventure #choosemountains #ourwild #liveyouradventure #greettheoutdoors #theoutdoorfolk #getoutstayout #optoutside ...

This weeks #TBT is from the 2014 Cascade Mountain School, Science of Stewardship program. High school students backpacked through the Mt. Hood National Forest while conducting meaningful ecological research. The Cascade Mountain School offers a variety of summer camps that give participants the chance to learn new skills, make lifelong friends, and become more connected to themselves and the natural world. Registration for the 2017 season is open! Go to: cascademountainschool.org for more information! #mtadamsinstitute #cascademountainschool #summercamps #mthood #science #stewardship ...

Got to go down one of our forest roads pretty deep in the forest today to make a plan to replace a gate and to look for danger trees that will need to be felled before the spring season. #usfs #giffordpinchotnationalforest #americorps #mtadamsinstitute #vetswork #oldmanpass #forestservice ...

This season is coming to an end here for the Mt Adams wilderness crew. I am so thankful to have served with each of these amazing people who took me under their wings and taught me how to be a wilderness ranger. The things i experienced will forever make me a better person and a better outdoorsman. And the friendships made will last a lifetime. This wilderness ranger crew makes a massive impact on preserving the designated wilderness areas within the Gifford Pinchot and these last completely wild lands would be lost if not for the hard work and long hours dedicated by these fine humans. Thank you for this life changing experience that I will be forever grateful for! #mtadamsinstitute #americorps #vetswork #wildernessranger #wildernessculture #mountainlife ...

Some of the biggest old growth Douglas fur and cedar trees I have ever seen in my life were in this section of forest. I also saw a bobcat and two different black bears while staying in this area. #paradise #zpacks #zpacksduplex #appgearco #appgearteam #vetswork #mtadamsinstitute #optoitside #theoutdoorfolk #greettheoutdoors #ourwild #choosemountains #earthpix #chooseadventure #discoverearth #wildernessculture #theoutbound #mountainvibes #keepitwild #staywild ...

When working a few hours drive from home with the road crew, clearing forest roads of downed trees and fallen rocks it’s best to just stay the night at work. Especially when work is one of the most beautiful places on this planet. #vetswork #americorps #mtadamsinstitute #giffordpinchotnationalforest #usforestservice #earthpix #discoverearth #zpacksduplex #zpacks #oldgeowthforest #nikonphotographer #nikonphotography #nikoncamera #wildernessculture #keepitwild ...

Some good news on this gloomy day! At the start of March I put in for a scholarship to get my Master Educator certificate through Leave No Trace. Looks like I received it!

Last year, our scholarship supporters gave several local kids the chance to get out in nature and discover their inner “wild scientist”. We think we’ve found a way to DOUBLE that impact on #GivingTuesday this year - stay tuned! mtadamsinstitute.org/donate #mtadamsinstitute #cascademountainschool #scholarships #nature #tbt ...
