NATURE-BASED TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES

We offer outdoor teacher retreats, workshops, and seminars to provide responsive nature-based training, state by state, as members like you make requests. Retreats are more intimate than large conferences to encourage dialogue, interaction, and the growth of local networks for support. It's easy to host an event - let us know if you'd like to host one in your town!
