American Wilderness Leadership School (AWLS)
Nestled in the beautiful Bridger-Teton National Forest near Jackson, Wyoming, the American Wilderness Leadership School (AWLS) provides the perfect atmosphere for educational programs. Established in 1976 with the vision of providing educators with a useful hands-on experience that they can bring home to their classrooms, AWLS has provided an accredited wildlife management program for 5,473 teachers who reach more than a million students annually, and a challenging experience for 1,338 students.
A most rewarding and moving program whereby children and adults everywhere, but especially individuals with visual impairment, are offered a unique opportunity to “see” wildlife through the sense of touch. By utilizing donated animal mounts, skins, skulls, and horns, thousands of schoolchildren, adults and individuals have been able to gain a “visual” perspective of what nature’s animals are like.
