Wilderness Awareness School is a national not-for-profit environmental education organization established in 1983 and based in Duvall, Washington. We are dedicated to caring for the earth and our children by fostering understanding and appreciation of nature, community and self.
Our dynamic wilderness education courses combine ancient and modern ecological wisdom, and empower people of all ages to become stewards, mentors and leaders. Over the past two decades, Wilderness Awareness School has grown from a small group of visionary individuals to a leading national organization impacting the course of nature education, and inspiring many schools and individuals across the country and the world to share our teachings and curriculum.
Our mentoring approach honors individuality, encourages self-sufficiency in learning, and awakens a kinship with nature as it trains youth and adults to blend the awareness of a native tracker with the knowledge of a wildlife biologist. Our wilderness education courses draw on traditions from indigenous cultures world-wide, emphasizing nature as teacher, routines to enhance awareness, storytelling, self-motivated learning, and tracking as an interpretive tool.
We have weekly school year programs for ages 4-adult. Weekend classes for teen and adults. Summer camps for 4-17 year olds.
If you want to get outdoors and play in new or old ways visit our web site to find out more. Or call with any questions.
Echo Glen Children’s Center is a Washington State Juvenile Detention facility. There are 130 great kids as young as 11 and up to 20 years old. Most have been neglected or abused by parent(s) who may have also been neglected and abused. It seems to be a continuous cycle – one that Echo Glen staff is determined to break. These kids crave positive attention from adults and need good role models. Nearly all have dangerously low self-esteem.
Background checks are required and you must over 21 to interact with the youth, but prep work can be done by any age or group.
Here are opportunities to show these appreciative kids that you care (ascending order of time commitment):
–Birthday Cakes**** – provide a cake once a month or once a year for a child who would not otherwise receive one. (no age minimum)
– **Monthly Birthday Baking – Help the kids bake cupcakes and create cards that are given to others-in-need for their monthly birthday celebration
– Career Fair – April and October – Join the panel to share the pros & cons of your career/job.
– Service Project Socials – Come chat with 3 or 4 youth while helping them with a project that helps others.
– Art Docent – 2 volunteers go into a class of 10 students once a month from 12:15 PM to 1:24 PM (day of month decided by EG teacher and volunteers). NO artistic talent required – lesson plans and supplies are provided. Be a lead docent or assist.
Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.
So Young Life leaders log many hours with kids — where they are, as they are. We listen to their stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.
We believe in the power of presence. Kids’ lives are dramatically influenced when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.
This is the first step of a lifelong journey; the choices they make today, based upon God’s love for them, will have an impact on future decisions — careers chosen, marriages formed and families raised — all ripples from the time when a Young Life leader took time to reach out and enter their world.

We are a group of people who just LOVE everything paranormal or unexplained. From ghosts to Bigfoot, it’s all fair game. We don’t take ourselves too seriously nor are we professional ghost hunters. We come together to share stories, conversation, and to explore the world of the unexplained. We plan on exploring cemetaries, haunted locations, go hunting for Sasquatch, go on ghost tours, or anything else that piques our curiosity.We started this group because of a lifelong fascination with things that go bump in the night. We want to meet others who share our love of the unknown and want to have fun with it! Note: I’ve added true crime and serial killers to the interests of this group. Criminal psychology is fascinating! Whacky roadside attractions and other weird locales would also be a lot of fun. Although I named this group Paranormal Buffs, my intent when creating it was to include just about anything strange or unusual. I didn’t want to call the group Wierd Buffs! Ha ha.
This group is for vegetarians, vegans and just veg-curious people who love to get outside and be active. This group is mainly focused on hiking the trails in the Snoqualmie Valley and the I-90 corridor. This group is open to all skill levels and the hikes vary from easy and short to long and grueling. It is all based on demand and suggestions. We can also use the trails for snowshoeing and trail running.

The Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum, serving Fall City, Preston, Snoqualmie, North Bend, Cedar Falls and Snoqualmie Pass for nearly 50 years, came into being as the result of the initial work of one woman, Ada Snyder Hill. She came into the Valley in 1910 to teach school and early on began collecting the historic items that made up the exhibit she arranged for the 1939 celebration of the platting of North Bend. They were the nucleus for the present day collection that includes cherished artifacts and anecdotes from all corners of the Snoqualmie Valley.

Transition Snoqualmie Valley formed when a group of friends from several valley towns were discussing ways they could respond, on a local level, to the issues of economic crisis, climate change and peak oil. The group learned of the Transition Towns movement begun in Great Britain, which has spread to hundreds of cities and towns worldwide. There are currently 103 official transition towns in the United States (TSV was #90!) and many more in the formative stage. This movement represents a promising way of engaging people and communities to take the re-localization actions required to create community resilience.
