Thank you for making the banquet a terrific success!
We were proud to honor teachers Allie Smith and Rosanne Schmitz for the incredible outdoor education opportunities they provide.
We were thrilled to see how strong our community is, and how much we care about outdoor opportunities for Juneau children.

A special thank you to our Advisory Committee, for offering a $10,000 gift, and to everyone who contributed in November and December to help us match it - we made it!!
And, of course, thank you to all the businesses and foundations that support hands-on outdoor education for our families. It takes a village...

KTOO's Lisa Phu followed up with a phenomenal piece after she tagged along on one of Steve's classes. Check it out here!
