The Alderleaf Wilderness Certification Program school year has come to an end with graduation day, this Saturday May 25. Many friends and family members came to Alderleaf to help us to support and celebrate this big day.
We had several students speakers sharing about their year, as well as short speeches from all of the staff. The potluck was overflowing with so much different food, including a great deal of salmon.
Here student Gabe speaks on behalf of Cohort 2, and shares from the heart.
Congratulations, graduates! We knew you could do it and are honored to have been part of your journey. We hope to see you thrive in the world beyond Alderleaf, and know you will do good work in the world.
Thank you, and thank you to everyone who has supported all of us this year!!
