TRIP DESTINATION — GILA WILDERNESS
The Gila National Forest incorporates the world's first Wilderness Area and at 3.3 million acres, it is the third largest National Forest in the continental United States. Opportunities for outdoor education and exploration are limitless. The topography spans four life zones with elevations ranging from 4,200 to over 10,000 feet. The Gila River, whose headwaters lie protected from impoundment within the National Forest boundary, is the lifeblood of the region. Fire is a natural form of disturbance, precipitation is limited, droughts are frequent, and temperatures can be extreme. Combined, these factors promote tremendous floral and faunal diversity.

In our outdoor Gila classroom, we learn about logistics, outdoor gear, packing a backpack, setting up camp, reading maps, planning a menu and cooking, and important details of safety and emergency response.
