Welcome to Nature's Backpack
Transformative Nature Awareness Mentoring for All Ages
Nature’s Backpack is a specialized nature awareness company that provides hands-on interactive, experiential nature programs to formal and non-formal educators and families in the community. Nature kits provide hands-on outdoor experiences that connect to natural world and teach stewardship in their own backyards.
We offer nature awareness weekday programs for children ages 3-18. Spending most of our days outdoors in the forest, fields and meadows, where the children are guided by skilled and trained mentors who understand the importance of play, child directed and emergent learning. These immersed-in-nature experiences develop a lasting connection with nature and passion for their own community.

Nature’s Backpack is grateful to live, work, and play in the traditional lands of the Peskotomuhkati Nation within the Wabanaki Confederacy, protected by the living, reaffirmation of the Covenant Chain, known as the 2016 New Wampum: Peace, Trust, and Friendship (Treaty). Canada sits on unceded and stolen Indigenous land – find out more here: https://native-land.ca/ We are committed to the process of decolonization as an action, not a metaphor.
