To empower a diverse range of Northerners to spend more time connecting meaningfully with the land, and developing a deeper sense of empathy, awareness and community.
Rivers to Ridges designs, supports and delivers outdoor and land-based programs for young people year-round.
We are based out of Whitehorse, Yukon and also run programs across the Territory. We respectfully acknowledge that we live and work on the traditional territory of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation and Ta'an Kwäch'än Council. We work to actively include local Elders and knowledge holders in our programs to bring their unique cultural teachings and stories of this land.
