Devoted Still and Always


During these days of social distancing, The Naturalist School is devoted still and always to the consilience of science and humanities, ecology and creativity.


This spring we continue to work with the Omaha Old Market Arboretum, teach backyard ecology projects to create native and chemical-free habitats, mentor nature writing and eco-poetics through on-line programs, help our friends create pollinator lawns, provide planters with our locally-wild saplings, consult for urban re-wilding and tree preservation, conduct biotic surveys for conservation partners, and support our members and friends on their journeys to a more mindful and deeper intimacy with the natural world.


Please donate to our good work and join us in the bush when we can gather again!       

Peace and frog-songs,

Jack Phillips
