News From the Woods

  • Welcome to Fall everyone! Mother Nature has given us a blustery start to this beautiful season. Along with the beautiful fall colors comes the stormy weather. A challenge for some, but not for Quietheart students! Check us out on Facebook.
  • Quietheart will be posting dates soon for our "Emergency Preparedness for Families". This will be a one day introductory workshop taught by Hawkeye. There will be additional "topic specific" workshops offered that will supplement the introductory  class . Watch our calendar page and your email for an announcement soon.

A Little History

Welcome to Quiet Heart Wilderness School. Established in 1997, Quiet Heart is a wilderness education program designed to enhance students understanding of the natural world, and instill in them a sense of stewardship toward their planet and its creatures. Through exploration of nature, as well as the sharing of knowledge and lore of the Ancestors, Quiet Heart students gain a sense of comfort and respect for the natural world of which they are a part. Led by experienced instructors, students will find courses and programs on topics such as primitive and survival skills, edible and medicinal plants, animal tracking, wilderness navigation, awareness skills, team building and problem solving. Quiet Heart’s various programs range from Through the eyes of a Naturalist our preschool program, OWLE for 8 to 15 year olds, and many other family programs and courses. Quiet Heart is all about learning by doing and having fun.

Quiet Heart has been serving families of South Snohomish and North King Counties from Seattle and Shoreline to Woodinville and Redmond  for over 20 years!
