MEET Adam Lieberg...
Adam Lieberg has learned wilderness skills for this often harsh landscape from elders; skills that stand the test of time. From identifying animal tracks and clues to fire lighting techniques, from building shelters- including igloos- to reading maps and compasses, Adam enriches our relationship with the natural world and will inspire you to want to do so back home.
Rich with wildlife & history...
Just outside Glacier National Park, our “home base” ranch was first homesteaded in the early 1900’s, when the only supplies to the area came infrequently by train. The original settlers’ grandchildren now welcome us onto this land, rich with wildlife and history. The stories and the hands-on exploration are captivating.
Superb naturalists who...
A dramatic setting for Hands-on experiences year round: snowshoe to track wildlife in winter, hike alpine peaks with binoculars in summer, learn stuff about forest fires you never imagined from those who both manage and at times fight those infernos. Our expeditions here are led by superb naturalists who will leave you stunned by what you see and have you wanting to better focus your own powers of observation back home.
MONTANA: SAMPLE ITINERARY
We customize each experience… options are endless!
DAY 1: Owning your experience
Welcome to Montana! Your guides introduce the Story Approach & Expedition Mentality, and our first nightly reflection circle empowers students to be fully engaged in their experience.
DAY 2: Species, Habitats, and Seasonal Elements of Glacier National Park
Focus on adaptations for life in this environment, working with expert biologists on wildlife tracking and habitat study. Head out for a snowshoe hike along the North Fork Flathead River, where we will put our learning into action, identifying tracks before we bring it all together with a wild game dinner back at the ranch.
DAY 3: The Original Inhabitants of Glacier National Park: Blackfoot Indian Heritage
Learn first hand about Blackfoot Indian Heritage with expert story teller and entertainer, Jack Gladstone. Enjoy a private tour of the Museum of the Plain Indians, and in collaboration with Lodge Pole Gallery Language Immersion School and Blackfoot Community College, we learn about the iconic Triple Divide peak from a scientific and historical perspective.
Day 4: Wilderness Survival Skills
Developing a deep understudying of the flora and fauna, landscape, topography, micro-climates and unique eco-systems of our surroundings. Engage in comprehensive wilderness first aid and survival training, including building and sleeping in your own snow cave as well as preparing a meal in the wilds of Green Valley Ranch property.
My 4th trip, first with Chill Expeditions – there is no comparison. The quality of the activities, the quality of the home stay, the quality of the hotels, the quality of the meals were all great in comparison.
