Explorers in O.W.L. (Old Ways Learning), ages 5-9 and Eco-Wise, ages 10-14 discover their World House community a little closer to home. We like how our children are developing a sense of place and respect for the land by getting to know the trails, woods, and stream areas just steps away from our World House building. These nature immersion programs offer in-depth exploration in everything from wild edibles and traditional story-telling, to stream exploration and animal population studies. In-depth time getting to know the outdoors through first-hand experience encourages children to build a relationship with Nature that is respectful, playful, and always engaging; participants come to see themselves as part and parcel of the Natural World.
