The Salmonberries class is a nature immersion program for ages 6-11 where kids learn through hands-on experiences while hiking, playing, and exploring the forest, water, and field habitats.
Heartwood endeavors to address the disconnect between people and the natural world and develop in participants a greater sense of belonging to and responsibility for our local natural resources through:
Learning activities that are authentic, meaningful, relevant, and engaging.
Mindfulness practices that develop place-awareness, self-awareness, reduce stress, and build personal resilience, confidence, independence, teamwork, communication, and leadership skills.
Stewardship activities focused on developing a deep understanding of the impacts and outcomes of spending time in nature for the space itself and for our own selves.
Outdoor skill-based learning such as knife work, fire building, foraging, and animal tracking that instills in children a sense of place, independence, self-sufficiency and ease while being outdoors and in a natural and wild environment.
