Call to Action

Every living being is an engine geared to the wheelwork of the universe. Though seemingly affected by its immediate surrounding, the sphere of external influence extends to infinite distance.”
~ Nikola Tesla

The Nature Studies Conservatory is a dynamically evolving, diverse learning community. Theory, research, and practice are applied to invest in new ways of being via social, economic, and environmental stewardship and design utilizing our local-global community resources: the arts, multimedia, ecopreneurship, science, and technology. Students, instructors, communities, and businesses develop effective partnerships learning and working together to create innovative strategies and build collaborative relationships to achieve a shared collective vision—sustainable evolution.

Culture of Sustainability (COS) Outreach

The Culture of Sustainability Outreach (COS) Project provides community programs, trainings, immersions, and services. The research-based, immersion experiences with post-retreat resources are tailored to effectively support individuals, organizations, and businesses interested in co-creating sustainable local/global communities, reducing personal/collective carbon footprints, and contributing to the restoration of the planet. These visioning immersions are an opportunity for personal and group inquiry in beautiful, green-sustainable settings in the US and around the world. The Outreach also provides sustainable living services and resources (online and onsite options). The Living Sanctuary program offers nature centered, immersion services for inner balance, home/work redesign, and personal retreats. Additional resources include: a nature and cultural arts summer mentoring program (ages 14-21) and an eco-focused, entrepreneur and urban farming cooperative/incubator program with micro funding.
