Each chapter focuses on the unique needs of its community and environment. We partner with local watershed councils and ecologists to develop our barter system, advise our on-site art classes, and dream up other outdoor happenings.
We collaborate with participants to document the project for online and print publications by providing day journals or through new skills learned on-site in our classes. Sharing experiences this way gives us all a chance to broaden our thinking, benefiting one community to the next.
Our inspiration comes from a shared vision with other art education and conservation programs, along with the creativity and enthusiasm of our artists, teachers, and community. Like so many before us, we see nature and art as inseparably linked.
