  • “Find Your Wild was a great place for my year-end class trip.  Hondo was great to work with.  He created a special program for my students and they had a wonderful day! There was something for everyone! They were challenged at many different levels, both physically and mentally."

  • "Our kids LOVED the snowshoeing/archery activities and thoroughly enjoyed going to the maple sugar trees. It was such a treat for them to experience something so uniquely Canadian. Our group "found their wild" and loved it. Find Your Wild's snowshoeing tour was the highest ranked mandatory activity for our February 2017 trip! Not only that, but your tour was one of the top ranked activities for ANY activity we have done on our previous 3 trips!"

  • Jamie Honderich of Find Your Wild did an amazing informative and interactive workshop on skull identification/animal ecology with his numerous items at Shaw Woods this past April. His knowledge and entertaining stories captivated the audience from 8 to 70 year olds. I especially enjoyed how he involved the younger children into his presentations. This is definitely a workshop that one should take the opportunity to attend if the event presents itself.

  • Jamie's wealth of experience and subject matter expertise provided a perfect compliment to our Ecology courses in the Outdoor Adventure and Outdoor Adventure Naturalist Programs, when he visited us with his impressive collection of mammalian skulls. His passion for life in the wild is clear and his delivery entertaining. We look forward to hearing about his many adventures since and plan to have him out again to inspire a new group of students training to be outdoor professionals.
