Utne Features Sierra's “Team of Rivals”

YK_02 If you flip through the Nov/Dec issue of Utne Reader, you'll find Sierra magazine’s “Team of Rivals” cover story (of our July/Aug issue) by Judith Lewis written about on Utne's page 54 (and also online).

Sierra’s article is about L.A. teens who participated in WildLink, a program that helps underprivileged urban kids experience the outdoors. Students from rival high schools Crenshaw and Dorsey explored Yosemite National Park and befriended each other.

The Utne article also mentions Sierra's accompanying profile about African American park ranger Shelton Johnson, who connects with Yosemite’s visitors dressed up as a buffalo soldier from the 1800s.

For more information about programs that bring urban kids to the outdoors, check out the Sierra Club’s Building Bridges program.
