About This Activity

Our wilderness field school series welcomes homeschool children as well as those who are excused from their school once per week to participate. We follow the changing seasons and further develop our naturalist skills. Together we seek to develop an understanding of the unique ecology of this landscape while also deepening our connection to nature, ourselves and each other. Field study topics may include: tracking, bird ID, wild edibles and plant ID, coal-burning spoons and bowls, whittling, carving, fire by friction, wildcrafts, shelter building, ecology, songs, sit spots, community building and nature awareness games mixed with time for unstructured play to nurture creativity and clarity of mind. With nature as our teacher, youth learn: Awareness and Sensory Acuteness Self-care & capacity to manage one’s own gear Quiet mind & patience Cooperation Empathy & embracing differences Detecting patterns & tracking changes Healthy assertiveness Supportive leadership Tree & plant identification Fire by friction Fort and shelter building Wildlife tracking Singing Handwork & natural crafts Storytelling & remembering Parents report their child becomes more confident, creative, resilient, and connected to nature through participation in this program. This complements traditional school settings by developing skills that enable them to succeed in academics and other endeavors. Winter break spans December 19 to January 18.
