2018 OWLS just soared all summer! Outdoor and Wilderness Leadership Skills is a new program which gives high school students the opportunity to learn and practice valuable outdoor skills, work towards careers in the outdoors, and earn credit from Copper River School District. OWLS inaugural 2018 cohort kicked off their summer with a four day instructional backpacking trip, spent the summer learning valuable skills to assist in outdoor leadership, job shadowed some fantastic outdoor professionals to see how lucrative and rewarding a career in the outdoors can be, and finished with an amazing self-planned canoe trip to the Tangle Lakes. What an amazing summer it's been! OWLS Information and Application Here
