Research shows that appropriate risk and time in nature are keys to encouraging resilience, emotional and physical health, and creative thinking in children. Led by nature play experts Adam and Jill Bienenstock, our training team includes recreation specialists, horticulturists, therapists, early childhood educators and landscape architects and designers—all united by a common passion for nature education.
Our relentless desire to advocate for nature education means there is no boundary we won’t push when it comes to fostering nature-rich learning and play opportunities for all children. School boards, municipalities and parks around the world seek out our transformative trainings. These workshops and trainings, which can be coupled with design consultations, occur on-site, so that we can best assess and utilize your outdoor spaces. We offer conferences and workshops to small groups or large systems. However you define your vision, we are ready to inspire you to harness the natural world as your most powerful teaching tool.
