#GoodNewsTues - Program Updates for October 18

Students who want to see a world that’s very different from their own often pick programs in some of the most remote regions where Rustic Pathways travels. This week we’re happy to announce we have added sessions for several of these programs. These options challenge students on multiple fronts, giving them experiences few other people get in their lives. Here are the newly added program sessions for 2023.

Off the Map: Mongolia

In this program students learn about ancient nomadic cultures as they travel to the point on earth that is farthest from any ocean. Along the way they take in unforgettable landscapes in the Mongolian wild. This is a one-of-a-kind experience for students who love to travel.

To wrap up the program, the students go on safari to view elephants, zebras and other African animals in the wild.

African Wildlife and Environmental Conservation

Students interested in conservation love this program since they get a little bit of everything on this trip. The teens work on coral reef projects and view marine life in the Indian Ocean. Then on land they explore issues related to wildlife conservation with the Jane Goodall Institute. Afterwards, students wrap up the trip with an unforgettable safari experience.
