We are a group of homeschool parents who want our children to have a meaningful connection with nature. Our meetups focus on giving our children the freedom to play, explore and take risks. You can find us playing in creeks, making mudpies, crushing sandstone into powder to trade and barter with our friends, taking hikes, climbing rocks, and learning about the natural world around us. 

We meet rain or shine, barring extreme and dangerous weather. As my daughter's forest school teacher in Switzerland would say, "There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing."

This is not a drop off program- so please be prepared to explore and get messy with us :)
