Organizational Group Discounts – Art of Mentoring

Some nature education schools create Organizational Groups year after year, because participation in the Art of Mentoring serves as essential training for anyone involved with nature connection education and mentoring— including instructors, staff, board members, elders, and other organizational leaders and friends.  Program participants and parents of youth participants also can join these groups.

Previous groups have come from:

White Pine Programs (Maine), EarthWalk (Vermont), Sassafras Earth Education (Martha’s Vinyard), Two Coyotes (Connecticut), Wolf Tree (Western Mass), Merrohawke (Eastern Mass), Northwood (Maine), Wild Earth (NY), Earth Arts (Ithaca), Crow’s Path (Northern VT), P.I.N.E. Project (Ontario), Flying Deer Nature Center (NY)


  • Group of 3-4 people: $50 discount per person
  • Group of 5-9 people: $75 discount per person
  • Group of 10+ people: $100 discount per person


How it works

If you want to join an existing group:

  • Complete a registration form and pay your $150 deposit before 5pm on June 1. If you miss the deadline, you jeopardize the discount of other members of your group.
  • Contact your organizational leadership as early as possible to let them know you are interested.
  • Note- you can be a part of a group and also request a scholarship.  The scholarship will be a larger amount, so it supersedes the group discount. Even if you do receive a scholarship, your participation in the group is still important for helping other group members get a bigger discount.
  • After the June 1 deadline, we will let you know whether your discount will be $50, $75, or $100.
  • Your remaining balance will be due by August 1.
