What Do We Do In Ventura Wild?
All programs cover Sensory Awareness, Traditional Nature Knowledge & Skills, Stewardship and Responsible Recreation practices. Each program is organically crafted by the educators in the field based on the abilities and interests of the group, the season and weather conditions, and the teachable moments that nature presents.
We cultivate a tone of playful curiosity with activities, projects, games, stories and songs…all inpiring nature connection and relationship building. Learning through play, exploration, and discovering our natural environments makes for smarter, healthier and happier children. Every week we explore the wild around our communities and gain awareness, knowledge, self reliance and social skills. Our instructors are skilled naturalists, experienced educators and compassionate mentors, facilitating group and independent activities with joy and care.
Noticing our Programs have changed? We hope you agree that it’s about time!
We are working hard to grow our capacity to offer more variety of programs, diversity of staff, and build a community of Nature Connected families!
