The Wilderness Classroom Organization
The Wilderness Classroom started with a simple idea: to improve students’ core academic skills and appreciation for the environment by introducing elementary and middle school students to the wonders of exploration and wilderness travel. The Wilderness Classroom is a 501(c)3 that reaches over 2,700 teachers and 85,000 students around the globe. Our mission is to instill a lifelong appreciation of the natural world while improving basic skills like reading, critical thinking and communication by highlighting the joy of discovery. We use a combination of interactive internet-based learning tools on our website, teacher training and live school programs to accomplish our mission.
