For educators, organizations and individuals working to connect young people to the natural world through the arts.


Our mission is to connect young hearts and minds to the natural world through the arts and to inspire teachers to contextualize these programs for their own communities.


Our priority is to nurture students toward a sense of place that leads to understanding and ownership of responsibility and purpose in stewarding their environments and communities.


Our organization’s culture, and the gauge by which we measure all decisions, is service-first. We work to be "POP" certified: principles/planet/people and purpose over profits.

Teacher Training

We offer our teacher training programs as both distance learning and

in-person opportunities. Our in-person trainings are held in Springfield, MO in the US and on the island of Saõ Miguel in the Azores, Portugal.


Our curriculum is designed to be customized to fit any length of student program. If you are interested in using our curriculum to enrich your community, sign up to be notified when we launch our 2024 training dates.
