What we're about

"Awareness...

is becoming acquainted with environment, no matter where one happens to be. Man does not suddenly become aware or infused with wonder; it is something we are born with. No child need be told its secret; he keeps it until the influence of gadgetry and the indifference of teen-age satiation extinguish its intuitive joy."

- Sigurd Olson, Former council member, The Wilderness Society
From the Wilderness Society website (http://wilderness.org/article/famous-quotes)

Discover wilderness as a way to connect to nature, to others and to yourself.

The purpose of this meetup is to build a community of learners that want to explore wilderness. As we go out together, we will share our knowledge and to learn from each other. As our skills and experience grow, so will our opportunities for greater wilderness experiences.

• Every outdoor event posted will have an educational objective in addition to the actual activity.

• Outings will be progressive. That means some outings will be the building blocks (certification) for more difficult outings.

• We will strive seek the "awe" in the wilderness experience.

• We will be open to new challenges and new places beyond what we are already familiar with while understanding that going a little farther, a little higher, a little steeper, leads to greater rewards.

Join us for stunning aerial footage and in-depth interviews from a diverse cast of wildlife advocates, tribal leaders, scientists, and policymakers. Wildlife corridors offer a way of understanding both New Mexico’s past and its future, insofar as intact corridors provide opportunities for wildlife to move to new habitat as climate change and human development threaten the old. CAVU has been interested in protecting biological corridors and species’ rights to movement since its inception in Latin America in 2004 By working to eliminate the borders fragmenting wildlife, we can help eliminate the borders fragmenting people. Join us for the film premiere and forum! Award-winning journalist Laura Paskus will moderate the panel: Stephanie Garcia Richard, Land Commissioner, New Mexico Karl D. Malcolm, PhD, Regional Wildlife Ecologist, US Forest Service Cristina Mormorunni, Regional Director, Wildlife Conservation Society Kyle J. Tator, Wildlife Biologist, Jicarilla Apache Nation
