Nighthawk Naturalist School Startup GROWTH

Our little naturalist, survival, wilderness skills and ecology school started educational programs in 2020. Our mission is to provide quality wilderness education for ALL. We believe this work should be done on a small scale and focus on community, and we are happy that our mission is coming to fruition. Our youth programs and adult immersions have gotten folks outside, working hard on projects, and learning together this year!

It’s been a big year and our programs all filled (!), but this year has not been without its challenges. If it is within your means to donate, all funds earned here will go towards operating and growing our programs next year. This includes the costs of public land use, supplies, operations, and helping subsidize discounts for Veterans, Tribal Members, and low income families.


This year, people are relearning the lesson that community is not only necessary for wellbeing, it is a survival tool. They are also learning that reconnecting with the earth and skills that have been practiced throughout all of human history is a basic need. If a child stays in tune with this from a young age, they’ll never need to struggle to find it as an adult. If an adult relearns this at an older age, it has the potential for paradigm shifts and a new love for lifelong learning. Our passion is to be a part in facilitating these connections. Every dollar earned here will go towards those efforts in Central Oregon.
