Our programs and workshops connect youth and adults with each other and with their environment, through activities that expand their horizons, their sense of self, and their connection with the community.
We provide small group outdoor experiences that focus on building environmental awareness through outdoor education activities such as camping, kayaking and learning primitive survival skills. Our experiential river and watershed studies and activities are aimed to help foster an awareness of the importance of environmental sustainability and stewardship. We explore our environment through natural arts to enhance our awareness of the connections between ourselves and our environment. Through this, people find their focus enhances their healing and energizing their lives.
