Adult Skills Nights

Adult Skills Nights (ASNs) are open invitation workshops intended to build skills, foster community and inspire creativity.

Once a month between October and June, experienced mentors create a space for adults to grow their naturalist knowledge, tackle new wilderness skills, and explore mentoring techniques that support nature connection.

Each workshop’s topic differs based on the mentor leading the experience. Past ASN topics have included:

  • Nature connection and mentoring philosophy
  • Carving / wood whittling
  • Storytelling
  • Friction fire
  • Nature Journaling
  • Singing
  • Tree ID
  • Basket weaving
  • Tracking
  • Herbalism
  • Foraging and wild foods

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Adult Skills Nights are currently taking place virtually (via Zoom).
