Some of our classes are also offered virtually.

Join Through the Trees Guide, Kendall, for a virtual New Moon Ritual. The New Moon is a time to connect with your higher self and begin to get clear on how you want to BE or show up in this life. We can then set intentions that align with these energies. It's a time for new beginnings and undertakings - a time to start fresh. This New Moon Ritual will include a brief guided meditation, some writing, and a candle lighting ceremony to start fresh with the energies of this lunar cycle and as we move toward the Winter Solstice. You are invited to have a candle and matches or lighter handy as well as paper and writing utensil.
This event takes place on Zoom. Once you register, you will be emailed the Zoom link.
Cost: By donation (donate if you wish, or let this be our gift to you). Donations support our Youth Scholarship Fund.Read less

In this class, Registered Maine Guides will share how to construct a shelter using natural material in your surroundings. Various types of shelters will be discussed, and we will be able to take a closer look at shelters built in our nature immersion program. Participants will then be able to work on constructing their own shelters. This class ideal for families (children of all ages welcome!) and adults. The entire class will be held outdoors, and we will be walking through the woods for about a half mile. Please be sure to dress for warmth and with appropriate footwear. Outhouse style bathrooms are available.

As a special way to come together to honor the Winter Solstice (December 21st) and the Full Moon (December 19th) right before the solstice, we would like to invite you to join us for a lantern walk through the trees on our wooded trail. We will gather together at the parking area, walk with our lanterns lighting the night to the field and into our labyrinth. Once we have all gathered, we will hold a special solstice ceremony and sing This Little Light of Mine, for those who wish to join in. After our walk back from the field, there will be a campfire on the lawn by the house with hot cider, cocoa and tea as well as homemade crafts for sale. Be sure to dress warmly, in boots and snowpants if there is snow!
Since our parking space is limited, we are offering three times from which to choose (4:30 to 5:30pm or 6:00 to 7:00pm). One ticket is for one vehicle only.
This is a fundraising event to help raise money for our Youth Scholarship Fund to support Youth Nature Programs at Through the Trees. We are so grateful for your contribution! Below is the suggested Cost per Vehicle:
$30 (1-3 people per vehicle)
$60 (4-5 people per vehicle)

Refunds to ticket holders will be honored until 5:00pm on Wednesday, December 15th, after which refunds will not be provided. Any refund given up until 5:00pm on December 15th will be minus a 10% processing and administrative cost (i.e. a $30 ticket would be refunded $27).

Through The Trees
“We did forest bathing and learned about trees and sustainable use of tree parts for tea and tinctures. The fresh air, nice people, and warm campfire were such a welcome change to the hustle and bustle. It really helped me feel centered and grounded, and I can’t wait to try making Tree tea at home.”
Through The Trees
“It was so nice to connect with people in nature over tea and share and learn together about the full moon. The releasing ceremony was just what I needed to get rid of what no longer serves me and make room for more positive things in my life. I left feeling lighter and with a great sense of peace and contentment.”
