Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people
can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

A Cooperative Outdoor Revolutionary Nature School


By bringing community back to nature we are working to build a sustainable future.  

ACORNS NW seeks to provide opportunities affirming our connection to the world around us through opportunities for nature connection. Based in transformative community and individual practices, we strive for holistic learning experiences, healthy relationship, and resilience within the individual.

 We value ancestral knowledge, and acknowledge the seasonal cycles in their natural rhythm. Through the senses, we tap into our innate ability to explore and understand the world around us. We believe in the inherent worth and beauty of creation and strive to create opportunities for understanding the world around us as a connected web of ecosystems and communities. We do this through intuition building, exploring curiosity, and growing our senses. 

We hope to arrive together in community as a multi-cultural, intergenerational movement of individuals, families and smaller communities to explore paths of connection and wisdom.
