    The Tahoe Rim Trail Association (TRTA), the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science (TINS), and the City of South Lake Tahoe (CSLT) are partnering for this 3-day program that will introduce teens (ages 12-14) to a wildlife survivor’s state of mind! We invite all eligible teens to come unplug and gain a greater awareness of Tahoe’s natural inhabitants.
     
    Year after year, these programs prove to be a great opportunity for teens to make new friends while learning about: wilderness survival, navigation (map/compass and GPS), Leave No Trace wilderness ethics, local ecology and geology and backcountry cooking and nutrition. Participants will backpack approximately 3 miles per day and develop crucial backcountry skills while out on the Tahoe Rim Trail.
