This Land Is…?

Location: Oregon, Montana, Wyoming and the Western USA
Dates: June 21 – 29, 2018
Application Due: April 4, 2018
Cost: $100 per student

The United States is home to 562 recognized Native American tribes and 59 protected national parks. “Ownership” of the land presents questions and challenges that tribal leaders, government officials and conservationists grapple with as individuals and as representatives of their respective groups. This Alternative Break experience is a “road trip” complete with life in the good old outdoors as we journey in vans across the great West and camp in our national parks. This is an opportunity to learn about many of the issues that impact the indigenous people of the US and spend time in nature – away from the internet and noise.

APPLY TODAY: Applications due April 4th, 2018
