AFE 2021 Youth Track: [email protected]; From Wilderness Expeditions to Backyard Exploration

February 8, 2021 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Inspiring Girls Expeditions empowers 16- and 17-year-old high school girls through 12 day backcountry science and art programs. At Inspiring Girls Expeditions Alaska, we typically offer summer expeditions in glaciology/mountaineering, marine biology/sea kayaking, and boreal ecology/packrafting. The COVID-19 pandemic required us to cancel our in-person expeditions in 2020, and allowed us to get creative in designing a virtual summer program. The result was a six-week intensive virtual program, [email protected], which took our expeditions to somewhere they had never been – into our living rooms and backyards.
