~This blog entry is brought to you from the photo collection of CS9 student Zoe Stack. Zoe is from Wauwatosa, Wisconsin where she attends Wauwatosa West High School. This collection of photos is from her solo camping experience. During the solo camping experience students spend 24-48 hours camping by themselves on campsites spread across Conserve School’s 1200 acre Lowenwood campus. This experience helps students build confidence in their ability to thrive in the outdoors. It also provides time for reflection on the Conserve School experience.~
Conserve School provides a semester-long immersion for high school students in environmental studies and outdoor activities that deepens their love of nature, reinforces their commitment to conservation, and equips them to take meaningful action as environmental stewards. Thanks to the generosity of Conserve School’s friends and its founder James Lowenstine all accepted students receive significant scholarship support.
