Spring Nature Immersion Days

For ages 7 -11* ​

The Southern Willamette Valley is abundant with opportunities to learn directly from the land that sustains us all. Through our exploration of local parks, wetlands, oak savanna, old-growth forest, and organic farms we share the secrets of wildcrafting and native plant medicine, permaculture, primitive skills and appropriate technology (what serves the greatest good, apply the least amount of energy). Further enriching our familiarity with lands easy to access (5-10 min drive from Downtown) and expanding our horizons a bit further along the paths less traveled (20-30 min).   Weather appropriate clothing required.

Description

Unlike a typical camp structure our immersion days are designed to follow the curiosity of the specific group of children that have gathered for the day.  Weaving games and activities throughout our day, we match the energy and interest of the group at any given moment.through sunshine and rain, darkness and light.

Locations. Sometimes we explore near town at nature places like Dorris Ranch, Hendricks Park, or Mount Pisgah. There are also many enchanting places we visit just outside of town (20-30 minute drive from city center), like the Echo Hollow botanical sanctuary, Elijah Bristow State Park and more. For immersion days outside of town, transportation is available from Eugene to Cottage Grove for six participants. Rideshare is also encouraged.

 

$58 per day.  Important: If you are registering for two immersion days this spring, please indicate which dates in the additional information text box on the registration form below.
