Our mission is to create a nature-based learning culture that promotes the restoration of eco-literacy among children and adults through the practice of earth-based crafts, skills and traditions. Co-ed and mixed age classes for children include: nature awareness; animal tracking; learning plants & trees; knife carving; fire making; shelter building; water purification; hunting tools; rope- and basket-making from plant materials; and pottery making.
Nature is not a commodity for the wealthy. Full and partial scholarships are offered. We have never turned away a family.
