This course is designed for educators who have an established routine of learning and exploring outdoors, who are seeking a deeper understanding of their natural landscape, and wish to extend their development and educational practices through the winter season.

Participants will:

  • Develop a foundation of natural history knowledge through immersive study of wildlife tracking, winter tree and plant identification, wild edible preparation, geology, and basic forest forensics.
  • Practice techniques for achieving a deeper level of inquiry and observation in nature through storytelling, wilderness craft, winter shelter construction, and the art of friction-fire.
  • Learn hands-on methods for embedding this knowledge into outdoor lessons and educational opportunities.
  • Build routines to deepen your class’s sense of place within the outdoor learning environment.
