I live to be outdoors. For me it’s mostly about fishing, but I enjoy hunting, hiking, kayaking, and pretty much anything else that gets me out in the wilderness. The tough thing is that I like to get away from civilization, but civilization is constantly encroaching on the wilderness. We need to find a balance, and that means getting more people involved in outdoor activities so that they’ll stand up to protect what needs to be protected. It’s better to share our special places with other enthusiasts then have them get turned into strip malls. The best way to get more people involved is to start them young, and that’s what Bay Area Wilderness Training is all about. They’re an Oakland, CA based non-profit that was “founded with the idea that California’s bountiful wilderness areas are a vast – yet untapped – resource for local youth-serving organizations.”

Into the Wild

I don’t have any data on it, but every year it seems that young people (and probably people of all ages) spend more and more time indoors. Kids spend too much time in front of screens, and that’s a bad thing for a lot of reasons. Bay Area Wilderness Training is working to change this by making it easier for people who work with youth to get them inside. Instead of working directly with youth, they give adults everything (training and access to outdoor gear libraries) that they need to be the kind of outdoor role models that city kids need. If you think this as important as I do, check out BAWT’s jobs on Idealist. Right now they’re looking for a Gear Library and Logistics Assistant.
