ReWilding Psyche

ReWilding Psyche Experiences are optional non-academic experiences in nature where students are invited to join VGI faculty and staff at a selected National Park to deepen their experience aspects of the ecological world. ReWildings are not required. 

ReWildings take place in some of the most beautiful, and endangered places in the US. ReWildings encourage a continued education of the natural world and for students to get to know each other and faculty as we explore our planet and the vast interdependent systems we are embedded in.

Note: Students make their own convenient flight and transportation arrangements for each ReWilding. Meals are the student's responsibility, but we are in areas where food is easily available.
