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 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 ...

Our Public Lands Stewards are graduated and off to their next adventures! During their 6 month @americorps internship, they worked for agencies such as the Forest Service, Fish & Wildlife Service, Oregon State Parks, and WREN. Their projects involved environmental education, plant and wildlife surveying, wilderness backcountry patrols, and trail work.

We thank them for enhancing our public lands and natural resources and wish them the best of luck!

This lucky jersey calf gets to grow up on pasture and will be milked twice a day. She will primarily eat grass, and only eat grain when milked. I have come to be a huge supporter of organic dairy, especially the organic valley label which is a farmer owned cooperative. #cascademountainschool ...

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 ...

It’s that time of year again! #GivingTuesday is a few weeks away and we are excited to get more people connected to nature! Last year we raised over $3,000 for Cascade Mountain School scholarships, giving students the opportunity to learn science while exploring the outdoors. We want to double that impact this year so stay tuned and mark your calendars for November 27th!

Another way to show your support this holiday season is to use Amazon Smile when making purchases. For every purchase made, Amazon will donate a percentage to Mt. Adams Institute! Link in bio.

Last year, our scholarship supporters gave several local kids the chance to get out in nature and discover their inner “wild scientist”.

AmeriCorps alumnae Hannah and Emma from our Public Lands Stewards program were #MadeInAmeriCorps.

During their service in AmeriCorps they received crosscut and chainsaw certifications, hiked hundreds of miles, and spent multiple 8-day trips in the Wilderness to complete projects and educate visitors. These ladies are total rockstars!
