The Home School Naturalist Program uses nature observation, awareness and earth based skills to prepare your child for a world of adventure, discovery, independence, and leadership while inspiring a passion to learn. We also guide our participants to a higher level of awareness for the earth’s delicate environment and its ecosystems.
This program focuses on cultivating the existing passions found in children, their desire to learn and their innate love of nature. We then add layers of hands-on experience in naturalist and wilderness skills. These skills include: tree & plant ID, natural fibers, sensory awareness, emergency fire building, lost proofing, wild food gathering and preparation, animal tracking & ID, practical camping skills & more. These skills are the foundation that we build upon as your child advances each season through the many different levels of this program.
All first time students receive the following; Nature Journal, Carving Knife, and AK (returning students will receive a nature journal)
