Indigenous Land Acknowledgement
Think Wild acknowledges that we operate in the traditional homelands of Warm Springs, Wasco, and Paiute peoples, who historically inhabited, managed, and cared for these lands. We must learn from the successful coexistence with nature that the first peoples of our continent have exemplified for generations. Think Wild is proud to work with tribal members of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs to share wildlife education and stewardship among local youth.
