Through attentive, immersive wilderness travel, our expeditions inspire enchantment with the natural world, ourselves, and our communities. We ask each person who travels with us to articulate a personal land ethic to carry home, and with it, a commitment to work toward a healthier future.

Here's a glimpse at our guiding words and refrains:


A land ethic changes the role of Homo sapiens from conqueror of the land community to plain member and citizen of it.  (ALdo Leopold)



Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.   (Gary Snyder)



Attention is the beginning of devotion.   (Mary Oliver)



Wildness is more a quality than a place.   (Michael Pollan)


By journeying to places we awaken and reinvigorate the earth, which returns this to us. A place within a landscape corresponds to a place within the heart. (Václav Cílek)

learn the flowers
