Oaks and Acorns (Parent and Tot)


Our Oaks and Acorns program is designed to help parents learn more about creating meaningful experiences in nature with children. Emphasis is on building a strong culture of nature connection around our families and communities.

Parents will develop their mentoring skills and learn about the natural world. They will learn about how we do what we do. Content may include:

  • Storytelling and songs
  • An introduction to cultural mentoring
  • Creating nature connection in your home and day to day life
  • Adventures, wandering, and tracking wildlife
  • Wild edibles, medicinals, and hazard plants (identification and uses)
  • Stewardship and taking care of the land
  • Nature-based crafting

This is a year-round program running from October – June. Program days and times are consistent week-by-week for each participant.
