OUR CORE VALUES
Tess Golden-Orr and Erin Cole started Heartwood Nature Programs in the Summer of 2020 after the school where they had been teachers closed permanently due to the COVID19 outbreak. Their mission: To connect children and families to nature and to foster communities around a shared commitment to our wild spaces. Tess has a background in outdoor education, and Erin is a former public school teacher turned naturalist.
