A Little History

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, Pathfinders for 4 to 7 year olds, OWLE for 8 to 13 year olds, Ancestral Skills for ages 13+ and many other family programs and courses. Quiet Heart is all about learning by doing and having fun.
