About The SummerTree Institute

The SummerTree Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, organized to provide new and refreshing viewpoints toward our environment, our place in it, and our responsibility to it.

The Institute works hard to embrace, learn from, and share the profound insights, knowledge, and wisdom of scientists, researchers, storytellers, shamans, artists, writers, children, and enlightened people who can help us in Making Environmental Education Irresistible.

We work to bring that thrill of discovery back to the kid in us all through a variety of communications and experiential activities, including educational programming, games, structured curriculum, retreats, seminars, workshops, tours, television, video and radio documentaries, publications and enlightened eco-travel.

The "Discovering the Ancients" program is one of the many ways that the Institute brings students, teachers, scientists and the community together to learn from the environment and to help protect it for future generations.

When you go out in the desert and actually look at the plants, and I mean sit and look at them, you begin to see the diversity and complexity this land has to offer. When you walk next to the plants and rocks of the desert, you begin to feel connected to them, as your grandparents would have felt, if they had lived here. It is not a harsh place, if you slow down and listen.
