"If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, then let us allow them to love the earth before we ask them to save it."

David Sobel

Mission & Vision


We envision a world where all youth find their strength in nature, know how to tend the wild within, and live compassionately with the earth always in mind.



Merrohawke Nature School, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, provides meaningful outdoor education programs ashore and afloat, for all ages, in all seasons, to inspire a deep connection to land and sea, a strong sense of self, and compassion for all.
