I highly encourage juniors to take at least one of these tests, and both if possible.

Copper River Stewardship Program (due March 31) and Outdoor Wilderness Leadership Program (due May 1)
WISE is currently accepting applications for two programs for High School age youth which also earn credit with Copper River School District.
Copper River Stewardship Program is a 10-day exploration of the entire watershed with a group of youth from communities all over the watershed. We will learn about ecology, resource management, and communication while travelling via a wide variety of means as we explore the Copper River Watershed and Prince William Sound. A highlight will be two days on a sailboat crossing the sound and learning about the legacy of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. We'll also explore the interior Boreal Forest and the Temperate Rainforest, and learn about a wide variety of issues affecting the watershed.
