Sharing a Love of Nature Gallery

Throughout the year, we offer diverse and engaging educational opportunities for children of all ages. From school plantings to summer camps, we share our love of the outdoors with kids inside and outside the classroom.

These galleries show just some of the fun we have while learning about our Island woods. Whether hiking through the woods, planting rare native shrubs, or making an owl mask, our educational activities provide kids with the opportunity to laugh, learn, and fall in love with nature!

Summer Nature Camps


Bushcraft Camps


Any and all aspiring young artists! Do you have wonderful paintings inspired by the woods or fields? Are you inspired by the wings of a butterfly or the feathery limbs of the hemlock? If you have a piece of nature inspired artwork that you’d like to submit so that we can show it off on our website, then please, with the help of a parent, scan your beautiful creation and email it to us!

Wonderful artwork can be sent to:
