News From the Woods

Sundays October 29 & November 12 at Yost Park from 9-12
Wild snacks and animal tracks! Following clues animals have left behind in the woods, we will become nature detectives and see who is living here with us! Building shelters, playing games, or collecting fall leaves ... who knows where our curiosity will take us? Your child will leave each week more inspired about nature and noticing more than ever before!
We guarantee that your child will go home smiling, tired and dirty.
Parents are welcome to come along, but wear your boots.

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.
