Experiential Education


The Greystone Nature Preserve's mission is to connect people to nature in a way that promotes appreciation and respect for the natural world.  To achieve this goal,  we immerse our visitors in the natural world at Greystone.  Our philosophy encourages experiencing nature rather than naming it.  At Greystone, we touch, smell, listen, taste, look and ponder more than focusing on the utility or name for any natural object we come across.  We allow our classes to be lead by their own curiousity and sense of wonder.  Spending 90 minutes in the outdoors is our first goal. During this time we help to make students aware of temperature, wind, light, space, and feel a connection to the natural world surrounding them.
