Description 

Our field trips are a learning adventure! We make the land come alive! Your group will explore the different ecosystems that co-mingle at Kateras and the different plants and animals that live here. They will learn a few edible and medicinal plants. We will build a connection to the land by visiting different parts of history. The geology, pre-colonial history and colonial era all have left their marks on the land and have important lessons to share. Your group will have a chance to explore and learn to navigate with a map and compass. We will learn how to build a fire using appropriate materials and techniques. At the end of the day your groups imagination will have been awakened and they will leave inspired with a deeper connection to nature and a curiosity about how much nature has to teach them once they are back home.

Typical day

10:00 am - 2:00 pm

After a lesson in map and compass the group will navigate to different parts of the land; the little creek, swamp, big creek and fish trap. At each area they will learn about the history of that area, what lives there and how the land has changed over time. Along the way they will learn about edible and medicinal plants and how they can use them. The group will pause for a picnic lunch. After lunch we will learn how to gather the materials needed for a fire, select a good spot for a fire and how to build and maintain it. The day will end with a circle discussion where the group will reflect on what they have learned and draw meaning from their lessons.
