Try this

FLC is an active, hands-on, you-have-to-try-this-for-yourself educational experience. We don’t just sit in small classes and look at the mountains. We hold class in those mountains. Or the desert, or the river, or a non-profit in town, or the US-Mexico border. We install solar panels on the Navajo Nation, and water systems in Myanmar. We take trips to the highest peaks on Earth. You have got to try this.
