Learning with the Land Program Welcomes You

Learning with the Land Program is a year-round nature immersion program for children ages 4-12 that aims to provide an on-the-land, child-led learning experience that encourages the development of the whole child. Emphasis is placed on connection with the self, each other and the land through outdoor learning activities that encourage self-confidence, self-regulation, resilience and working with peers. Let’s get outside, get dirty, and get connected with nature!

We would like to acknowledge the knowledge holders of this land, both past, present and those emerging. ​ Learning with the Land (previous Rooted in nature) was established in 2021 (by Anabel) with the goal of providing frequent and repeated access to the land for children in Yellowknife.
