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 ...

It’s always been my dream since hiking the Appalachian Trail to somehow make climbing mountains my job. Lots of hard working on the mountain this weekend but some of the most rewarding work I’ve ever done in my life. I must thank the Mt Adams Institute for giving me this opportunity. #vetswork #mtadamsinstitute #americorps #forestservicelife #veteran #mountainlife #mountaineering #wildernessculture ...

The Wilderness crew at the Mt Adams ranger station got to do some joined training with the US Army’s Yakama Dust off search and rescue crew today. It was a major learning experience for me especially learning this from a rangers perspective. These are the guys that come rescue critically injured people from the remote wilderness areas of these mountain in Washington. If you are lucky enough to be rescued #vetswork #mtadamsinstitute #americorps #wildernessranger #giffordpinchotnationalforest #blackhawkhelicopter #yakamadustoff ...

Our Public Lands Stewards @Americorps intern Raina is a total cross-cutting rockstar. 💪🏻

“It feels great to be learning new skills that I can utilize right away in the work setting . . . Those eight days on the trail and in the wilderness were so incredible; it was full of breathtaking views and out-of-breath hard work!”

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 ...

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 ...
