Parent Testimonials

"We love the Earth Native program! My son is so excited to learn about the outdoors. He also tries to educate other kids in his school. He has gained confidence outdoors and it has been a self-esteem booster. I think all kids should have the opportunity to take this program. Thank you! "

– Nicole P.

"My just turned 7 year old son took the last couple classes of this year. Boy I really wish we had heard about the class earlier. I thought the day would be a little too long for him but instead he was filled with excitement and joy at the end of each class.

Last weekend our family stopped by Zilker for what we thought would be a short walk to look at the water. But my son's enthusiam for showing us the group's special spots and everything he had learned quickly took over the visit. We stayed for several hours. We will be back in the fall for the full year. Thanks Dave!"

We also offer an Advanced Monthly Program that is open to children who have previously attended any of our monthly programs, or as a second day option for those who are also enrolled in this Monthly Program. More information on the Advanced Monthly.


Our Preschool/Kinder Monthly  Program runs the same dates as our Saturday Monthly. 

Have your kiddos join us for an incredible adventure this school year! So many studies are now showing that kids are happier, healthier, and smarter when they have regular time spent in wild nature. Let us help your kids get a strong dose of Vitamin N (Nature) this school year!


The backdrop for this class is our amazingly beautiful school campus with a clean spring fed creek, giant old growth pecan trees, an incredible abundance of wildlife, and some of the coolest woods Texas has to offer. This class will deeply explore nature through awesome hikes, fun nature games, outdoor survival skills, sneaking and awareness, and so much more. 


Our teaching style puts children’s natural passions and inspiration at the forefront of learning. Through carefully crafted activities, awesome nature stories, and grand adventures your kids will begin developing a deep love for the outdoors that will last a life time. 


Topics covered in this program include:

  • Basic outdoor survival skills

  • Local plant identification (including edible, medicinal, and useful plants)

  • Archery 

  • Animal Track Identification

  • Sensory awareness exercises

  • And more!
