Adult Rewilding

Immersions

We offer immersive rewilding weekends in both Athens, GA and Murphy, NC for adults. Our rewilding immersions  support deep relationship with the wilderness within and without through exploration of earthskills and handcraft, creativity-opening activities, play, and connection with the landscape.
