With the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 virus and following the guidance of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), all of our classes are currently suspended. Our top priority is the safety and health of our families, friends and students. 

As this is a constantly evolving situation, please regularly monitor our standard means of communication (Facebook, Email, and Website) for updates. 

Wilderness Education & Medicine of Texas is the sum of many years of professional and personal experience in outdoor programming and experiential education. Jan Hackett owner/director brings a wealth of experience in risk management, outdoor leadership and “wilderness” skills from his time spent at Duke University as the Director of Outdoor Programs. 

You can enjoy one of our experiential education programs individually by signing up for one of our many classes or make arrangements for us to come to you and your group.
