weaving_earth_8_shieldsAbout The Event

All of our youth programs focus on connecting children to nature, to one another, and to self through direct experience and meaningful play. Our students gain a deep knowledge of place by learning to identify local flora and fauna, understanding habitat ecology and how to help it thrive, and learning how to interact with wildlife in a healthy way.

We foster celebration of, relationship with and commitment to our local ecosystem. We create an environment where youth feel comfortable in nature, and have the opportunity to form personal relationships with their wild neighbors. Youth programs are designed to let the child’s curiosity and passion guide their learning. We emphasize nature as our greatest teacher. Natural cycles lead the way.

The Bird Language Intensive for Kids will help your child:

  • Understand the basics of Bird Language
  • Deepen their connection to place
  • Learn about local ecology
  • Feel comfortable being in nature
  • Practice mindfulness and expanded awareness
  • And, have a LOT of fun!
