School Enrichment

Take it Outside

We recognize the intrinsic value of encouraging children to experience the natural world within their comfort level. Our nature guides visit local schools, leading students on local field experiences, practicing hands-on wilderness skills and understanding the social bonds that we share.

With small school green spaces, local parks and school gardens, we understand the need to support children’s natural curiosity and developmental need to move, play and interact.  Our enrichment includes: sensory exploration, acute observation, deliberate skill practice and nature-based play. We aim to provide holistic, and enriching experiences that promote the development of wilderness skills, sustainable attitudes and appreciation of the natural world.
