Since 1950, we have led the effort to permanently protect nearly 110 million acres of wilderness. We have been at the forefront of nearly every major public lands victory.

 

Our Mission

Our mission is to create a dynamic learning environment that supports children to become confident, creative & inspired learners and empathetic citizens who can adapt in a local and global community.

OUR VISION

Our vision is to develop innovative enrichment programming that is hands-on, project-based and personalized to meet each child's needs.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

Child-centered learning

We encourage children to become active participants in their own learning and development.  Children are at the heart of our supportive learning community, where their experience is personalized, immersive, and collaborative and where each child's unique qualities of age, gender, temperament, culture and learning style are respected.

culture

Our practice of collaboration and personalized project-based learning is the foundation of our culture of inquiry, creativity and innovation.

core values

We nurture relationships that value respect, trust, kindness, accountability, and honesty.  We connect in a learning environment that not only supports & extends intellectual growth, but also provides the space for self-awareness, personal discovery and self-reflection.
