The Outside Institute
The Outside Institute was founded in 2017 in the Upper Delaware Valley with a mission to help people connect to the healing and transformative powers of nature. By nurturing humanity's innate affinity for all living things, we hope to inspire joy and passionate stewardship of the land. Our year-round program includes forest bathing, hikes, plant walks, field trips and workshops. We collaborate with expert guides, craftspeople and educators to offer instruction in beekeeping, herbalism, sustainable foraging, tracking, photography, birding, natural dyes and more.
