Wild Deer 1

Our Wild Deer 1 program is a great opportunity for educators, parents, and outdoor enthusiasts to deepen their connection to nature. Through a mix of active instruction and experiential learning, we help participants learn in-depth naturalist knowledge, wilderness skills, and mentoring techniques. Participants gain a wealth of new knowledge, a heightened awareness of nature, and a personal drive to continue learning.
