"Imagine a different relationship, in which people and land are good medicine for each other."  

-R.W. Kimmerer

Through the Trees is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization set on 58 acres of forest, field, pond and brook in Freeport, Maine. Through nature immersion programs, classes for all ages and community events we invite and gently guide children, teens, families and adults to connect with the wonders of nature by providing transformational experiences that awaken and enliven the mind, body and soul. 

  • We invite peace, freedom and deep healing opportunities through Nature Immersion and Connection.

  • Through Nature Engagement, our programs forge resilience, confidence and humility. 

  • We offer opportunities to take action in tending to our Earth fostering a sense of purpose, belonging and fulfillment through Nature Stewardship and Service.

As a 501(c)3 non profit organization, we strive to make our programs available and affordable for as many families as possible. We are always balancing this with the expenses of operating a business, which includes our desire to hire and retain passionate, skilled, knowledgeable and dedicated staff. Unfortunately program tuition does not cover our costs. Funding through donationssupporting a camper, Friends of Through the Trees Memberships, sponsorships and events contribute to our scholarship fund and other expenses. We are grateful for every dollar that helps to sustain Through the Trees and our mission to guide others in meaningful nature immersion experiences.

    “Through The Trees guides you into a different way of looking at and interacting with the world around us. It was an amazingly peaceful and thought provoking experience.”

  • Through The Trees

    “Through the Trees has been the best thing that happened to our family in 2020! Two days a week my 7 year old is completely unplugged, learning from nature, building relationships in a safe environment and every time I pick her up she asks if she can stay longer... I'm so grateful for the staff, the land, and the vision of this amazing program!”

  • Through The Trees

    “I went to a class there last week and it was really great! Kendall Scott was the instructor and we did some forest bathing and learned all about trees and how you can use parts of the tree for tea and tinctures and such. I really enjoyed the outdoor time. The fresh air, nice people, interesting topics, and the warm campfire were such a nice change to the hustle and bustle. It really helped me feel centered and grounded, and I can’t wait to try making some tea at home.”
