Mission: Wolf Weekend
$50.00 – $80.00
Join Queer Wilderness Project on our first field trip! This is an addition to our wildlife tracking series where we will be visiting Mission: Wolf in Westcliffe, CO. This is a camping trip. We will have the honor of spending time with one of the most incredible creatures of Turtle Island—wolves. These keystone species have had a legacy of being persecuted since settler colonialism through extirpation across this continent. As integral parts of the ecosystem, there are wolf sanctuaries that care for these beings who for various reasons cannot be released in the wild. They are there as ambassadors to continue the fight extinction through education.
We will have a chance to witness them being fed as well as offer volunteer time back to the space that cares for our awe-inspiring ecological kin. Interspersed with our time at Mission: Wolf, we will be going on tracking wanders in this beautiful country. We will have ample space to connect as queer folks and perhaps be blessed by a chorus of wolf howls!
If you have concerns about gear, let us know. Women’s Wilderness has some gear that they can lend to support accessibility.
This workshop is intended as a safe container for LGBTQIA folks of any gender to engage in the culture and practice of wilderness-self reliance and earth-based living skills.
