Nature-Based Learning which operates under the core principle that everyone deserves access to nature. Our six-acre nature-rich campus, with outdoor gardens and forested trails, provides us with a stepping-off point for exploration. Outdoor observation enhances creativity, boosts self-esteem, and enables our members to improve communication, pre-vocational, and creative thinking skills. Through our hands-on activities, projects, nature walks, horticulture, and animal care, we provide members the opportunity to connect to the restorative influence of the natural world.
