Our Approach

Our goal is to connect adults, children, and families with nature, inspiring a way of life that is in harmony with the environment. We create programming that is place-based, child-centered, and experiential in nature.  Our professionally trained educators develop curriculum that reflects developmentally appropriate practices as well as state science and environmental education standards.
