Real students. Real stories. On the regular.

Our 2017 programs have begun! Here is Team Aguila, at Piedra del Indio in Coyhaique, Chile. These students will head to Cerro Castillo for a week of field research with CONAF on their way south to Cochrane. We're looking forward to a great program in Patagonia!

David Kimberly (@drthunderdome) and Brent Olson (@helixgames) left the snowy wasatch behind this week to scout some internship opportunities and field sites in Costa Rica. Today's field trip may have been cancelled because of downed trees (or maybe mudslides) but we managed to spot some wildlife in San Jose yesterday. #westminsterslc
This is the biggest break I've had from my best friend in a year. After 2 long weeks I'm glad to say I have been reunited with my partner in crime #westminsterslc #westminstergirls #myperson

Have you ever seen a tiger rock climb? #westminsterslc #climbing #tigeronsie
Thanks to Peter Metcalf and all of the #westminsterslc folks who braved the winter for last week's #firesidechat. Peter's talk about his values, history with @blackdiamond, and life as a climber and mountaineer was entertaining, inspirational, and timely. Thanks again everyone!
