The Alderleaf Wilderness Certification Program completed its school year and celebrated graduation on Saturday June 5. It was an incredible, practically miraculous, day of sunshine and warmth after nearly a solid month of rain. As if the sun had come to warm everyone during the celebration and send them warmly on their way into the world. We could not have asked for better weather.
Graduation was followed by a huge feast, with a rich assortment of meals and desserts tempting everyone. Many goodbyes were said, hugs given and well-wishes spoken.
Thank you class of 2009-2010! All the staff wishes you the best out there in the world! May you find joy in whatever your doing and maintain your connection to the natural world.
