Hi,
I had the good fortune of watching my daughter grow and develop into a caring, engaged, active, and confident young woman from her time with Wild Whatcom. Her many joyous outings of exploration and discovery forged her love of nature, resilience, an authentic sense of self, and desire to serve her community. I only wish Wild Whatcom could grow to serve all kids. So happy to hear that they are now reaching a broad audience through the schools -- much deserved and needed. Yahoo!
