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 ...

#throwbackthursday to Cascade Mountain School's 2016 Nature Art Camp! This year, CMS is offering a similar camp called Recycled Art where students will work with recycled and repurposed material to make beautiful works of art! This camp will inspire artistic spirit while gaining an appreciation for the things we throw away. Students will get the opportunity to feel like real artists in a local Trout Lake art studio as they create their magical masterpieces. Registration is open at cascademountainschool.org! #mtadamsinstitute #cascademountainschool #recycledart #summercamp #registernow #tbt ...

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 ...

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 ...

#americorpsweek my story is a long one. I joined the military when I was 17 years old (almost 10 years later still in, 4 yrs active 6 yrs reserve). When I was 23 I joined Americorps for the first time. It offered me a way out that I needed. I had always wanted to connect people that had similar interests as me. Anyway after a successful term I went back to college and got a job working at an at risk youth camp that wanted me for my Americorps experience. After that I got job working for the Park Service. I then got married. I moved to Hawaii with my husband and got a really good job (or so I thought) I didn't like it all that much. I saw another opening with Vetswork that was cheap enough for Hawaii standards and applied. I got the position. Anyway now I a volunteer coordinator, which is probably one of my favorite positions ever held.

I get to connect people with nature in a way that they enjoy. I also talk to a bunch of people a day (which I love). I find what needs they have and connect them with out community and environment. I am hoping to get into University of Michigan after this (if admission programs reads this please keep me in mind) and continue passing on the passion for environmental work! #madeinamericorps #universityofmichigan #fingerscrossed🤞 #communityservice #nationalservice #americorps #mtadamsinstitute

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 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 ...
