wake up to wonder

We believe that multisensory experiences in nature—watching the belly of a full moon rise in a canyon, breathing in the woody smell of pines after the rain, hearing the first hoots of owls at dusk—bring us back into our bodies, connect us to our humanness, and deepen our awareness of how interdependent we all are.

Wild Awake curates immersive outdoor learning experiences that bring us closer to the earth, each other, and ourselves.

This fall, wrap yourself in moon magic

After a season of plunging in as many alpine lakes as we can, foraging gifts from the sea, painting with indigo, basking in ocean sounds, and singing through the rain, we are ready to root down, lay our backs on the loamy earth, and go lunar. 

Our moon (and lest we forget the colorful moons on our other beloved planets!) will always be a constant beacon for us in the skies – from pounding mochi as a child under the light of a harvest moon to waiting as adults with bated breath for moonrise to emerge over Death Valley’s dusty plains...

Join us in deep spacetime

When we love the Earth, we are able to love ourselves more fully. I believe this. The ancestors taught me it was so.

Awe and wonder should be accessible to all, yet outdoor learning is often out of reach for low-income communities of color. That's why we need your help! From November until the end of the year, we are fundraising with the goal of expanding our programs to more youth of color while creating a sustainable future for our team.
