Thank you for taking the time to review my upcoming events. You will find a nearly complete listing of my programs and activities through August. I hope you will find an activity that meets your needs.

Mission Statement My philosophy is based on a love of the natural world, which has consumed my life for as long as I can remember. I believe that my role is as a caretaker for the planet and wish to encourage in others a profound connection to the earth. Most importantly, I want to create a positive experience for children and adults in an outdoor setting.

Background. For those who are new to my programs, I'm an environmental educator with a degree in Natural Resource Management from the University of Maryland. I have taught youth and adults about the natural world for more then ten years. My self-employment began in 1994 with one home-school group and has evolved into Native American studies for public and private school groups, Nature adventure camps running continuously through the summer and spring break, teacher education seminars, birthday parties and other activities involving paintball, kayaking, fishing, caving, rock climbing, survival and most of all Native American crafts. I have studied with well-known trackers, biologists, and Native American elders; conducted an extensive wildlife survey; survived off the land; made log canoes, teepees and "Indian" Villages; learning kits; produced a wide range of crafts and many more natural related activities. Finally I'm a certified First Responder and lifeguard.

Safety is the primary concern in all my camp and class endeavors and is an integral part of the educational process. All participants are instructed as to the safety rules and restrictions associated with each activity and must conform to these rules in order to participate in each.
