WINTER SESSION 2018: FRIDAYS–starting January 5 through March 2, skip February Vacation
WINTER IS A GREAT TIME TO BE OUTSIDE!
Children learn ice safety, hypothermia prevention, winter shelter building (quinzees), animal tracking, and more!
Heron is our signature program, taking place on Larch Hill Conservation Area in Amherst for more than 15 years. Hundreds of students have taken the challenge of the Heron, and have developed their nature awareness and wilderness living skills.
Curriculum covered is seasonal according to the natural laws and cycles of nature. For the development of wilderness living skills, it is necessary that we follow the rhythms of the Earth by harvesting materials and creating our earthen wares in the proper season.
