Upcoming Adult Programs

Nature Connection Mentoring Training with Amy Hyatt

  • Introduction to Nature Connection Mentoring Sep 30 – Oct 1, 2023
  • Core Routines of Nature Connection Nov 4 – 5, 2023

The trainings explore the pedagogical and philosophical frameworks we use at Vermont Wilderness School.
