Taking it a step further from environmental education, nature connection mentoring seeks to help individuals grow as people and in community, while growing in connection with the more-than-human world. This program is an opportunity to be supported in at least 3 broad areas of development:
- Becoming a better naturalist
- Practicing and teaching survival and / or earth-based skills
- Learning the Art of mentoring
We will look for ways to help you express your gifts and passions, as well as ways to expand your learning edges.
