Mentoring Wild Kids

The need to develop youth that understand and care about forests and the natural world has never been greater.

In fact, the very future of the natural world rests in our ability to do this, and it can help ensure they pass along a stewardship ethic to their descendants. This webinar explores the importance of this mission and recommends methods and techniques for raising "wild" kids. Lessons from the field can get you started in a positive direction that fits you and the youth you are working with. The sharing of experience among participants that have done this was encouraged during this interactive webinar.
