About Cottonwood Gulch
Welcome to the Southwest!
Who We Are:
Cottonwood Gulch is a leader in outdoor education, running wilderness expeditions in the Southwest since 1926 – one of the longest running wilderness immersion programs of its kind.
Join us on our world-class backpacking and hiking excursions, with hands-on experiences in Southwestern art, science, biology, and archaeology, as well as immersion in Native American traditions of the Navajo, Zuni, and Acoma people.
The Cottonwood Gulch Foundation sponsors educational wilderness expeditions and outdoor programs in the American Southwest that promote personal growth, scientific, historic, and cultural discovery as well as a knowledgeable environmental ethic among all those who participate.
