Children at Earthbound Skills learn through a direct experience in nature while building a deeper connection with their surroundings, their peers, and their mentors. We immerse our students in exciting hands-on naturalist studies that consist of tracking, bird language, animal and plant identification, nature based crafts, and movement games that cultivate confidence and awareness.
We work with public schools, home schools and charter schools teaching children of all ages. We also offer programs and workshops for adults and families occasionally throughout the year.
"What an amazing experience for our boys to experience the world as it is intended to be experienced. The modern rush of parenting proves challenging to slow down, get intentional with our surrounding environment, and teach essential skills our children need to equip them for independence. Thank you for fostering a relationship of our children as stewards of (not users of) the natural world."
- Dan La Bar, home school parent
