Inspiring Girls Expeditions 2018 Applications Open

Erin Pettit-2
Dear Cryolist, 

If you haven’t heard, Girls on Ice has evolved into Inspiring Girls Expeditions ( We expanded to an ice-ocean interactions kayaking expedition in 2017 and next summer we will offer a new Girls on Ice expedition in Canada and Girls on Rock expedition that involves alpine geology and ecology rock climbing in the Rockies. Please share this with anyone you know who has teenage daughters or works with teenage girls. 

We offer these expeditions tuition free to girls who mostly don’t otherwise have opportunities to challenge themselves and discover their courage and curiosity. Please also consider giving to our program or sharing with friends who might be interested in giving. You can help change these girls’ lives. Http://

Thanks and Happy New Year!
