Nature's Turn focuses awareness on earth and sky in urban, suburban & rural environments. Through guided walks, hands-on science and arts workshops, gardening and writing, we arouse the sense of wonder - the wellspring of interdisciplinary learning. Students of all ages are encouraged to experience personal contact with the living world and interact with the architecture of built environments. Earth stewardship and sustainable living are integral to our teaching. Our programs promote hands-on, inquiry-based, creative science learning, with the goal of nurturing the whole person - mind, body, emotion. Nature's Turn offers indoor versions of most outdoor programs, bringing the enlightenment of direct contact with nature to all audiences.

Your two-week residency may be complete, but your spirit lives on here at Mill Road!... I've coordinated a number of artist-in-residence programs... and I can honestly say that your program was the most successful and worthwhile in terms of impact on students and teachers alike. I feel confident that long-lasting results will occur from your work here. Red Hook Schools
