Student Intern - Josh McLoughlin

“There is no quiet place in the white man’s cities. No place to hear the leaves of spring or the rustle of insect’s wings”


“This has become such a part of me I can’t belive I have only been a part of it since Febuary.” Josh at the end of the Alaskan Bush Camp.

Josh McLoughlin

Josh was a member of the team that went on the Alaskan Bush Camp in 2019 and will share his experience as an intern this year. Josh is in his jounior year of high school, which in its entirety, has been homeschooling. He has been involved with livestock production and harvest since he was six. Josh and his family live off-grid in a low impact home. Josh designed and is building his own timber-framed cabin on their small ranch in the foothills of North-Central Idaho. Besides animal husbandry, some of Josh’s passions include mechanical engineering, metalworking, low impact construction, and amateur radio. He also hopes to deepen his hunting, trapping, forestry management, and applied mechanics skills.
