Prairiewood Forest School
Through our year-round Forest School classes for ages 2-17, we offer playful, inquiry-led immersion opportunities for children and youth to connect with community, personal creativity, and the natural world. Each class session starts at Prairiewood, our Outdoor Classroom, and may also involve time with our farm animals, prairie wildflowers, garden, pond, and forested trails.

You can see photos and stories from past and current classes below as well as on our school Instagram and Facebook page, and can help us support more students in benefiting from Forest School by sponsoring a student scholarship here.
Please write firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about our Forest School classes and other nature-based programming, including private programs we could offer to your class or other group (wildcrafting, tea blending, garden field trips, nature mentoring, or a single forest school session for children or adults).
To apply for a partial or full tuition scholarship for any of our programs, please reply Yes to the financial assistance question on the lottery application form (for fall & spring semesters) or the summer class notification sign-up (for day camp style Magic Academy workshops).
