Dan Fontaine

Executive Director, Wilderness Youth Project

Dan Fontaine is the Executive Director of Wilderness Youth Project. Dan first attended a tracking workshop with Wilderness Youth Project (WYP) in 2001 and hasn’t been able to quit the project since. Over the years he’s been involved in nearly every aspect of WYP.

He’s guided by a certainty that connection with the landscape around us helps develop the personal gifts that enrich our lives and the community that contains us.
