    Our Commitment


    As a school that has been providing nature-based programming for youth since 2009, we recognize that the work of nature connection is built upon stolen Native land, as well as the stolen labour of Indigenous, Black, and People of Colour. We recognize that systemic injustice exists and that we have a responsibility to work toward reparations and equity in resources and nature-based programming. As a staff team, we’ve reached out to the Urban Native Youth Association (UNYA) to offer our time, resources, and community to see where we can help the most. All initiatives by Soaring Eagle Nature School are based on what is most needed by UNYA.
