We only have one Blue Planet to call home. Into the Woods’ mission is to get the children of Anchorage into the nature surrounding our city—connecting with nature at an early age creates a happy, healthy child who, as an adult, will become a champion for our natural world. By instilling a love and respect for nature from an early age, children learn the value of stewardship of our earth.
Into the Woods founders Kristina and Dan strongly believe that immersing oneself in nature brings contentment and sparks joy. Further, connecting with nature in today’s world is important now more than ever-we need to act as a global community to ensure future generations can enjoy the natural beauty we have today. Spending time outdoors in nature dramatically improves both physical and mental health, giving a balance of mind, body, and spirit.
The skills learned from spending time outdoors develop personal confidence and the ability to safely enjoy the nature all around us. Children who learn how to safely recreate in the outdoors gain many things, not the least of which is a sense of personal responsibility and confidence. Regardless of age, learning how to do new things is empowering. Into the Woods LLC offers children and adults the education needed to learn new skills and operate safely in the backcountry.
