The program is run by Christopher Russell, alumni of Jack Mountain. Christopher studied political science and economics in college, but after working in the field for a few years wanted to try something different. While attending Jack Mountain’s semester program in the north Maine woods, Tim and Christopher chatted about Tim’s idea of a program for young people that really immersed students in the outdoors, while helping them to understand their place in it. After that, School of the forest started to take shape. Christopher is a passionate outdoorsman, photographer, and writer who enjoys having the opportunity to share that passion with young people. Christopher has solo-hiked half the Appalachian trail, canoed in the north Maine woods and camped out anywhere he could find a flat site for his tent, including the hills of Arkansas, mountains in Nova Scotia and as much of his native Maryland as possible.
