The Howl Experience is a Canmore-based non-profit who creates experiential learning programs that foster relationships between youth, communities, and ecosystems. Since incorporating in 2022, they have supported over 200 youth from across Canada to attend 5-day to 4-month long programs in the Bow Valley on Treaty 7 Territory, the Yukon on the traditional territories of the 14 First Nations of the region, and Nova Scotia / Mi'kma'ki.
As one of their Howlers (or participants), Logan, put it best: "Howl teaches community by creating it, it teaches leadership by giving the space for leaders to arise, it teaches reconciliation by building genuine relationships. Howl really hasn't taught me anything, but through my time in Howl, I've learned a great deal. That's the hope, not to be taught but to learn, to experience, and to see the world as it really is."
