Salmonberries
Ages 6-11

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 in locations such as Saint Edward State park in Kenmore, WA and Paradise Conservation Area in Woodinville, WA.

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.

  • Student directed free time that encourages 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 and foraging and animal tracking that instills in children a sense of independence, self sufficiency and ease while being outdoors and in a natural and wild environment.
