Nestled in the beautiful Bridger-Teton National Forest near Jackson, Wyoming, the Adult Wilderness Leadership School (AWLS) provides the perfect atmosphere for educational programs. Established in 1976 with the vision of providing educators with a useful hands-on experience to bring home to their classrooms, AWLS provides an accredited* conservation education program. Nearly 6,000 teachers have increased their knowledge of wildlife conservation, land management and outdoor ethics to offer to more than a million students annually.

*Educators receive continuing education units from AWLS and college credit through Colorado State University.
