Overview

This fun trip is a great opportunity for teens to explore their own personal relationship with public lands, while taking part in a community of young people who are actively seeking to improve the relationship between people and the land. In collaboration with The Wilderness Society (TWS), this program includes thought-provoking discussions about our nation's history of protecting landscapes for public use and enjoyment and how policy and society enhances or exacerbates diversity, equity, and inclusion, all while backpacking and canoeing through the public waterways and wilderness areas of the White Mountain National Forest and Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Teens on this trip can expect to combine some full days hiking and canoeing with some down time to learn and share their ideas about public lands, art, conservation, and advocacy. Teens will also have the opportunity to present a personal call-to-action at the end of the trip on a topic that they choose, to an audience of AMC and TWS staff. This group will meet and end at the AMC's operation base at 6 Spice Street in Charlestown, MA.
