original North Cascades expedition on Mount Baker in Washington State
will be held 21 July - 1 August 2013, and an Alaska-based expedition
will take place 21 June - 2 July 2013.

Girls on Ice is a unique, free, wilderness science education program for

and alpine landscapes through scientific field studies with professional
glaciologists and mountaineers.

Applicants must be at least fifteen years old by 21 June 2013 and no
older than eighteen on 1 August 2013. The application process requires a
series of short essay questions and two teacher recommendations. The
Alaskan expedition is primarily intended for Alaskan and Pacific
Northwest girls. For further information, or to download the application
