Under The Canopy after school is a place-based eco-education program that connects people of all ages to each other through active engagement with their natural environment. With an integrated anti-bias curriculum, our program immerses students in their own nature-connection journey. We facilitate cultural mentoring to awaken individual’s unique gifts and empower them to enrich the health of their communities, transforming the lives of all people.

What is Under The Canopy After School Program?

Meet Margaritte Founder and Executive Director

I am passionate about connecting people with nature. I am a mother, community organizer, sustainability practitioner, teacher, writer and gardener. Under the Canopy is my program to get kids outside and loving the nature that surrounds them daily. It's also a chance for adults to re-connect to the fun of being outdoors. I love playing outside and I want you to join us!

Under The Canopy School is approved!!! 

On February 5th 2024 Tulsa Public Schools authorized UTCS, a nature based public Waldorf School. We can't wait to open our doors to elementary students in the fall of 2025. Stay tuned for a new website and community engagement events starting this spring!
