Wendy Sanders Adirondack Guide

Wendy Sanders has been hiking and climbing in the Adirondacks for over 40 years. Her interest in outdoor adventure began in high school and continued through college as she received a BA from Hampshire College in Outdoor Education. For the next 15 years she guided summer trips for numerous outdoor programs and eventually ended up in the classroom teaching high school biology. She couldn’t stay away from leading trips, so she started a Science Club/Outdoor Adventure Program for her students and offered them trips throughout her 30 years of teaching. Since retiring from teaching, she has been committed to continuing her passion for outdoor adventure. Her emphasis is providing clients with safe and enjoyable experiences by being sufficiently prepared.
