Outside Now Open House

Believe one who knows: you will find something greater in woods than in books. Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters.
— Saint Bernard de Clairvaux

Our nature connection programs are growing; more families are looking for alternatives to traditional educational models and more people are returning to nature as a primary source for learning. Reconnecting to the natural world with trained mentors to guide those experiences in an inclusive group brings remarkable opportunities for growth–unique for every individual.

Join us and learn more about our sensory rich early childhood program (Coyote Pups: Ages 3-7); challenging, outdoor program for school-age youth (Nature Explorers: ages 7-14); or comprehensive program–extensive experiences in nature and connected academic learning–for teens (Nature Academy: Ages 12-19).  Check out our summer adventures, too!
