Mission Statement

BAWT's mission is to create opportunities for urban youth to experience wilderness first hand.

Description

BAWT, a program of the Earth Island Institute, began with the idea that California's bountiful wilderness areas are a vast, yet untapped, resource for local youth-serving organizations. BAWT promotes the wise use of these national, state and regional parks through our professional wilderness leadership training. Then, we link our workshops to our outdoor equipment library, so that youth organizations and schools may outfit their groups for trips of their own -- free of charge! We believe that well led trips to granite cliffs, isolated beaches and ancient redwoods, provide youth with powerful and life changing experiences.
