Upcoming Programs for Adults

Essentials of Resilient Community: Mentoring and Nature Connection

  • One weekend a month for seven months starting in November 2019
  • Adults
  • Brattleboro, VT

You’ve heard how it takes a village to raise a child. What does it take to raise a village? This seven weekend series of workshops will go deep and explore mentoring and nature connection topics designed to help you raise a village.

Lynx Tracking Expedition

  • Near Jackman, ME (carpooling to be organized prior to the workshop).
  • February 20-23rd, 2020

Join Vermont Wilderness School for a long weekend on the trail of one of the most elusive carnivores of the Northeast!

When Women Were Trees

  • Once every season in 2020:
    • January 25 (inclement weather date January 26th)
    • April 18 (inclement weather date April 19th)
    • July 11 (inclement weather date July 12)

If you’ve ever felt, or heard, an invitation by a forest to enter into the embrace of its canopy of mysteries and delights, then you know how many stories are told in deep woods, when we take the time to enter, and to listen.

Upcoming Programs for Youth
