About us

An Enduring Mission:

For more than 15 years it has been our mission to steward the health of our community by fostering life-long relationships with the natural world through exceptional mentoring and nature education.

A Focused Vision:

Through our mission, we work daily to achieve a cultural intervention that will bring back into our modern lives a necessary and healthy relationship with the natural world and within our human communities.We have studied with the country's leading naturalist educators and survival skills programs, and have honed our outdoor skills around the world.

Who We Are:

We share experience teaching in primary schools and universities as well as other wilderness education programs. Our curriculum has helped to shape college degree programs and is available in print.

Our interests include birding, tree lore and cultivation, bow-making, primitive technology, winter survival, permaculture and animal tracking, and what's more is that we all share a passion for teaching skills that strengthen our relationship with wild nature.

With over 40,000 hours of combined outdoor education experience, you we don't think you can find a more competent and dedicated staff anywhere.
