I have attended courses at ENWS for 4 years. To call the classes "impactful" is a severe understatement. They have been perspective altering. To quote Thomas Henry Huxley:
"To a person uninstructed in natural history, his country or sea-side stroll is a walk through a gallery filled with wonderful works of art, nine-tenths of which have their faces turned to the wall. Teach him something of natural history, and you place in his hands a catalogue of those which are worth turning around."
Earth Native's classes are mostly outdoors, always interesting, and a great way to change your perspective. As for me, it has granted me a catalogue (to reference the quote) that now permeates the way I perceive the natural world. Instead of a city-boy with zero confidence in the wilderness, I now feel competent to the level of comfort in being part of nature.
I owe a lot to ENWS and will never be able to repay the debt. - JB
