Steve Archibald

Steve Archibald is the Education & Outreach Specialist at the Arthur Carhart National Wilderness Training Center. Steve came to the Carhart Center in 2011. For over 20 years, Steve has served as a Master teacher, place-based outdoor educator, and workshop facilitator. Steve believes that the best teacher of science, math, the arts or physical education is one's own backyard and it's his job to introduce teachers and students to their backyard. Steve developed the K-12 Wilderness Investigations curriculum and has trained up hundreds of teachers how to use it. With his leadership, the Outdoor Explorers Mentoring Program has been replicated. Before joining the Carhart Center, Steve worked as a private educational contractor to develop and implement programs for the Forest Service (A Forest for Every Classroom), Montana State University (Native Waters), The University of Montana's Environmental Studies program, Clark Fork School, Montana Audubon, Montana Natural History Center, and Missoula Children’s Theatre. As Master Teacher at the Teton Science School in Jackson Hole, WY, Steve wrote and implemented the K-12 Journeys place-based education guide. As Head Teacher at Sundance Mountain School, one of eight original charter schools in UT, Steve launched place-based learning experiences for K-7 students. Steve holds a BS in Elementary Education and MS in Implementing Science in Elementary Education from Utah State University.
