Our Education Approach
At Stokes, we strive to bring all people closer to our local landscape. We utilize current best practice in environmental, experiential, and place-based education in order to achieve this ideal.
We embrace our pedagogical genealogy stemming from Aldo Leopold, teacher of our namesakes Allen and Alice Stokes, in designing programs which unite people in asking those questions which only the natural world can inspire and honestly answer.
