Weekly Monday Program in Bastrop
Forest Roots is a weekly nature education course that runs each Monday during the school year for ages 6-11 in Bastrop, TX.
Students and instructors work closely in a variety of settings to develop skills that will lead to a deeper knowledge of the natural world and authentic connections to nature, awaken sensory awareness and cultivate knowledge of place, as well as build self confidence and peaceful interpersonal relationships.
At Earth Native, our unique teaching methods center around an "Invisible School" method of teaching and learning that is based on education models used by ancestral human communities across the world for thousands of years. Our teaching philosophies are based on natural learning cycles that use your child’s passions and natural inspirations as the spark that drives their education in the outdoors.
Each week at Earth Native's Forest Roots Program children will explore nature, hear inspiring stories, learn and practice wilderness skills, play games and incorporate core routines that help them develop strong skills and knowledge in areas such as:
Edible and Medicinal Plants
Wilderness Survival Skills
Knife Carving & Safety
Primitive Arts and Crafts
...and much more!
