Under The Canopy 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?

Meet Margaritte Founder and Managing 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 is Starting a School!
We envision a nature based public charter Waldorf inspired school that serves elementary students a balanced education that nurtures the development of the whole child. Education with a focus on the environment is essential in raising young people who care for our planet and be creative, critical thinkers.  Sign our petition and take our school survey to share your vision for an Eco Education school.
