Interest in the natural world begins early— encourage that appreciation in this unique parent and child program designed for ages 1-5. Explore the sights, sounds, and textures of our local ecosystems side by side with your child through age-appropriate activities and games within a small group. Make new friends while immersed in the mysteries and joys of nature! Six week course begins April 15th, limited scholarships available.
Through the use of games, exploration, music, and fun within the context of a small community, the children will learn the following skills: animal tracking, traditional survival skills, medicinal/edible plants, wild food/primitive cooking and teamwork. Tailored for home-schooled students or students who have a shorter school day on Wednesdays.
PROGRAM FULL— Registration is now closed for Blue Heron Nature Studies . Our Sunfield Early Release and Friday Day Programs still have space, also check out our Summer Programs!
This program combines the wisdom of wildcrafting plants and advanced survival skills to create an exceptional experience for our students. The 3-hour duration allows us time to slow down and observe the wild, and also to get wild ourselves. Students will pick from several projects to complete during this program.

This program is designed for children who want to spend time out in nature, playing games, having fun, and learning about the natural world. Through the use of games, exploration, music, and fun within the context of a small community, the children will learn the following skills: animal tracking, traditional survival skills, medicinal/edible plants, wild food/primitive cooking and teamwork. The educational approach of this program encourages creative thinking rather than providing constant answers. The teaching staff stimulate the growth of problem-solving skills, and stretch the students into greater self-sufficiency while honoring different learning styles. The results are profound.
