Winter Tracks – 2017/2018

The 2018 Winter Tracks season kept up the pace after the previous season’s record program growth! Over 12 program days, FSPW served 356 students from 12 schools in three states and four counties. This could not have been possible without the help of 40 volunteers who contributed 818 volunteer hours teaching, cooking hot dogs, directing small groups and keeping everyone warm and safe.

The following modules were taught this season:

  • Tree Identification
  • Winter Birding
  • Animal Tracking
  • Leave No Trace
  • Skulls & Pelts
  • Avalanche Awareness
  • Orienterring

When asked what the most meaningful part of the experience was, one teacher remarked “Watching our students engage with the volunteers in an environment that allowed for knowledge to be gained and enthusiasm for the outdoors to be garnered.”

This year, FSPW partnered with The Lands Council and their Project SUSTAIN to bring students from two Eastern Washington schools to Round Lake State Park for the day.
