Our mission is to cultivate an active awareness and understanding of the endangered shrub-steppe, provide

nature-based education for all ages, and strengthen commitment to environmental stewardship.

Outdoor School and Pond to Pines Summer Camp


A place where kids can see, hear, touch, smell, even taste nature. A place where they can learn about themselves, their natural environment and their peers while participating in fun and educational outdoor activities.


There’s something for every age and every interest that will help your students grow by facing challenges, overcoming their fears and doing things they never imagined they would!
