HELP NEEDED:: Doug Walker Challenge Course Moving to Teton Science School
Almost 20 years ago I lost my brother and one of my heroes. He is someone I continue to emulate. We shared a commitment to protect the earth, to educate others, specifically through experiential education, and to live a fun and passion-filled life. Doug was determined to make a positive change in the world and was an inspiration to many.
There are countless stories of individuals around the world reaching out to our family to tell us how much he meant to them. Even though its been 20 years, these stories continue to come in and help my family and I deal with our lost and connect us to his life. This course will not just help to continue to build Doug’s legacy, but will expose a generation of people to many of his tenets by which he lived: adventure, learning beyond the classroom, nature, fun, and challenging himself both physically and spiritually.

“This is our body. Drawn up cross-legged by the flames
drinking icy water
hugging babies, kissing bellies,
Laughing on the Great Earth”
These elements are all part of what we would like to re-build at the Doug Walker Challenge Course at Teton Science Schools.
