The US federal government owns 30% of the land in the United States. How is that land used? Who is accessing this land today? In this program, we explore issues of water rights, drilling, river conservation, drought, native lands, and recreation through immersion in some of the US’s most spectacular public lands.
Places and ActivitiesThis program is flexible, and can be offered in 8 or 10 day itineraries.
“I don’t think it is possible to pull a trip like the Amazon and the many activities that you directed without the sense of purpose you have, without your drive for experiential learning for teenagers. All our experiences with the Envoys team were amazing!”— Angela , Traveling Faculty, RoundSquare Colombia 2015
“The Envoys Staff were exceptionally committed to us and to the goals of our trip. They were thoughtful, kind, caring, friendly, with great sense of humor, yet serious in their connection to the ethos of professional development that was our trip’s purpose. I was struck over and over again by how they literally RAN to be in the right place to respond to any given situation.”— Constance , Traveling Faculty, Friends Seminary Colombia 2016
“As a parent I felt the experience was well orchestrated and managed by Envoys. As a participant my daughter loved the whole experience; it is something she will treasure for the rest of her life”— Linda T. , Parent, Hingham Japan 2015
