American Wilderness Leadership School (AWLS)

What is AWLS?

  • AWLS is professional development for educators. If desired, it can be taken for college credit through Colorado State University. We also offer continuing education units.
  • It is about learning to use the outdoors as a classroom – balancing indoor with outdoor classes. It is about learning to incorporate conservation education lessons into existing curriculum content: math, science, language arts, social studies, physical education and art.
  • The North American Model of Wildlife Management is the core of conservation understanding.
  • A basic law of ecology is that everything is connected to everything else – interconnected. Like nature everything in the AWLS Educator workshop is interconnected.

The AWLS Program is sponsored by the SCI Foundation.
