Registration open for HoWL summer youth activities

Homer Wilderness Leaders (HoWL) is offering six expeditions across Kachemak Bay, six day-long trips hiking and stand-up paddle boarding, and eight Discounted Rates for Boys and Girls (DiRtBaG) Service Corps days during June and July. 

“Even if you have done one of these trips with HoWL before, new staff and altered curriculum makes it a whole new experience,” wrote interim programs director Leah Lamdin in a press release.

HoWL founder Libby Bushell is taking a leave of absence for the 2016 summer season, Lamdin said. With Bushell’s vision in mind, Lamdin is working with returning instructors to empower young leaders in Homer through fun and dynamic adventures in Alaska. 

“She (Bushell) recognized the beauty and wildness of her own backyard and decided to create an organization where the magic of the Kachemak Bay could be spread among young people,” Lamdin said. 

HoWL activities are open to youths ages 10-18. Register at howlalaska.org or call 907-399-4695.
