Weekly Program in Georgetown
After years of requests, Earth Native is excited to expand our award winning weekly nature programs north of Austin at Georgetown’s beautiful Garey Park conveniently positioned right between Leander and Georgetown.
Owl Eyes is a weekly nature and wilderness skills education course that runs on weekdays September - May for children ages 6-13 years old (see below for age ranges by program day). Our skilled instructors will work closely with Owl Eyes students to help them develop specialized knowledge about nature, authentic deep connections to the natural world, awaken sensory awareness and cultivate knowledge of place. Not only will Owl Eyes students learn a ton about natural and physical outdoor skills but they will do so while building self confidence and peaceful interpersonal relationships within a supportive community.
The Owl Eyes program is offered on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.
Wednesday - Ages 6-10
Thursday - Ages 10-13
Friday - Ages 6-10
At Earth Native, our unique teaching methods center around the 8 Shields Nature Mentoring Model, a method of teaching and learning that is based on inspiration as the fuel that drives learning, tracking of natural learning cycles in order to successfully steward the entire learning experience, and core routines that have been used by ancestral human communities across the world for thousands of years to create a deep lifelong understanding of nature and natural systems. Our “invisible school” teaching approach uses your child’s passions and natural inspirations as the spark that drives their education outdoors. When learning is truly driven by inspiration, school doesn’t feel like school and learning is built right into every game and adventure we embark on.
Each week at Owl Eyes, children will explore, hear inspiring stories, practice traditional and wilderness survival skills, play games and practice core routines that will help them to establish competence and knowledge in areas such as:
Wilderness Survival and Bushcraft Skills
Edible and Medicinal Plants
Wildlife Tracking and Animal Behavior Studies
Interpretation of Bird Language
Camouflage and Stealth
Natural Navigation Techniques
Shelters and Knots
Crafting Using Natural Materials
Knife and Saw Safety and Use
....and much more!
