(AEWE) Mission Statement

"The mission of AEWE is to expose youth to our Nation's public parks and wild spaces through hands-on, intimate exploration and to plant a seed of respect, hope, passion, preservation and stewardship. The goal of each backpacking experience is to walk quietly in the woods, leave nothing behind and go forth with a new sense of purpose and respect."
