Look Who's Talking

The best way to learn about what traveling with Walking Tree is really like is to talk to teachers who have already done it. Below is a list of educators who have recently organized and traveled with us. We encourage you to reach out and hear about their experiences. The below table is sortable so you can easily find people from your area, people who traveled to a destination that you're interested in, or whose program had the same focus as you (community service, conservation etc).

As you know, teachers are busy so please reach out respectfully and let us know if you'd like additional contacts.
