Guided Outings

Guided Adventure Scientists Outings

We created customized guided outings for groups including public and private schools, universities, businesses, agencies, NGOs and communities.

These trips ranged from one day, to a week or more spent in the backcountry. Powerful learning experiences for those involved, they also contributed important data for our partner scientists.

Read about past guided outings in our Project Reports.

Grizzly tracking with the Sierra Club’s Mission Outdoors
veterans program, Tobacco Root Mountains, Montana

I learned to recognize all types of wildlife tracks, traces, hairs and scats; I learned about the scourge of Blister Rust and the pressure it places on grizzly habitat; I discovered the ethos of Leave No Trace camping; but most of all, I learned that anyone, regardless of experience, can make a difference.

The weekend would have been successful even if our goal had just been outreach and education. With a diverse team of volunteers we were able to cover a huge amount of ground, and our efforts may ultimately help protect bears and their habitat.

The weekend was a huge success.  The participation of 13 volunteers allowed us to split into six groups over the two days, and cover more wolverine trail segments than we could have possibly covered on our own.  The productivity of our tracking efforts, in terms of distance covered and samples collected was probably three times greater than what we would have accomplished without ASC volunteers.
