"To awaken in children a deeply felt connection with the natural world, one that inspires curiosity, stimulates learning, and brings new life to classroom performance."
What We Do
Enrich North Carolina’s Standard Course of Study through hands-on, 'experiential' learning on nearby, protected natural areas. Allow students to develop a connection with the land, become more physically active, and gain in self-confidence while improving science aptitude.
Who We Serve
Fifth grade students from participating schools in Transylvania, Henderson, Buncombe, Asheville City, and McDowell County school districts. It is our goal for the program to increase its reach across North Carolina and beyond as we continue to seek opportunities for expansion.
