Staff

Mountain Alliance utilizes paid field staff and volunteers to implement our service and adventure-based programming. Staff must be able to relate to and understand the youth of today, while assisting them in their journey towards becoming the leaders of tomorrow.

Judgment and experience are vital in maintaining an emotionally and physically safe environment for our students. Our trip leaders are certified in Wilderness medicine and have prior experience facilitating experiential learning activities with groups in a variety of conditions and settings.

Mountain Alliance staff are: enthusiastic outdoor leaders, concerned citizens, passionate about giving back to the community, world travelers with varied backgrounds, and personal adventurers.

    Outdoor Photography Series

    This 4 week series is all about learning to capture the beauty of our landscape with a camera. Each week builds on the previous as we learn new aspects of outdoor photography, in and around Watauga County. Often we are accompanied by a knowledgeable photographer from the community providing expert advice and teaching. At the end of the series each photographer picks their best shots for display during the Down Town Boone Art Crawl, November 1st  at The Jone's House. Photo by: Chloe Crabtree, WHS senior
