We develop programs that engage our curiosity while working to enhance critical thinking skills and improve scientific literacy about life and the natural world.
Our programs focus on five primary high-impact subject areas, including:
- Natural History and Wildlife Conservation
- Ecologically Conscious Agriculture and Industry
- Ethnobotany and Ethnomycology
- Philosophy of Science and Environmental Ethics
- Logic and Critical Thinking
We believe that science and philosophy education will radically impact our future. Scientific literacy and critical thinking are two fundamental tools that radically affect how humans experience and interact with reality. Science provides tools for evaluating and predicting our experience of the world. Philosophy provides tools for evaluating and refining our thoughts and beliefs about the world and beyond. These powerful tools are even more powerful when applied together and establish a toolkit that allows anyone to navigate life more meaningfully. We do all that we do with the firm conviction that as people learn, they grow and become more empowered to cultivate a better world.
When it comes to science and philosophy education, it just comes natural for us.
