Nurture Growth

We create inspired outdoor experiences. Learning by Nature is founded on the premise that engaging outdoor play is a right not a privilege; a necessary whole body experience for all. Being playful at all ages positively influences our physical, mental, social health and development. Play shapes who we are and how we interact with the world and each other.

Inspire Creativity

We ignite innovation through play. Learning by Nature connects children and adults with nature through play and learning. Our creative design-build process, projects, programs and services are designed to naturally engage all ages and abilities in the joyful and educational process of free play. These placemaking experiences shape life’s endeavors.

Build Community

We connect people, naturally. Learning by Nature spaces build community through natural placemaking and play. Multigenerational play spaces and Music Parks in Public Spaces, Business Parks, Developments, Resorts, Camps, Healthcare facilities foster community. We work collaboratively every step of the way. Our design-build process involves clients in the co-creative process as much or as little as is desired; from the initial consult to installation and ribbon cutting.

Embrace Sense of Place

We foster placemaking. Learning by Nature creates playful engaging spaces that build meaning and sense of place while connecting people with one another and the world around them. From bare ground to infusing nature play into developed spaces, our projects thoughtfully reflect local landscape and lore in form and function. Natural Playspaces and Music Parks are catalysts for creative engagement between people, place and play.

People Play, Naturally.

Most of us have experienced firsthand the positive effect outdoor ‘play’ time has on our personal wellbeing. Given the opportunity, we, as children and adults, know how to play. At Learning by Nature, we help to re-connect people to place and play by intentionally making natural spaces for discovery and interaction. When we play outside, we naturally feel more enlivened and connected to the place where we find ourselves and one another.
