Description and Mission

Tapping into enduring traditions as well as the latest educational research, we encourage learning's inherent passion, curiosity, and joy.

We are first and foremost a community bound together by a deep love, reverence, and curiosity for the natural world and all of its inhabitants. We are also a community of seekers, organizers, educators, artists, and dreamers who love to wrestle with big questions.
