tudents on the Fort Washakie Wilderness Expedition will develop leadership and teamwork skills through practical leadership experiences as the groups travel through remote wilderness on the tribal lands in the Wind River Mountains.

NOLS teaches a situational leadership theory that demands different decision making styles depending on group skill, task urgency and outcome predictability.


On the Fort Washakie Wilderness Expedition, teaching young people to effectively negotiate real-world challenges and leadership demands will be grounded in tribal cultural values of deep commitment to the group and respect for all elements of the living environment.


The Environmental Studies curriculum will focus on current natural resource management issues in the Wind River Watershed. Students will also have opportunities to learn about their local natural environment through hands-on lessons.
