Step 2. Keep going...

Build a foundation >>

Step 1. Start your journey…

Opt In for Earth >>

Choose to have a deeply rewarding relationship with our home planet based on love, respect, and gratitude. It’s endlessly rewarding, plus the best way to save it. Our logoed items help reaffirm your choice.

Cut to the heart of it all, Earth’s fundamental themes. These are the story lines that propel the natural world. Understand them to make sense of Nature at the broadest level. Our products make it easy.

Step 3. Go further...

Rediscover your region >>

See Earth’s themes at work in the landscapes you care about. Each natural region has its own unique character and story. Find out about them to enrich your sense of place. Our regional tales describe everything you should know.

Step 4. Carry on...

Awaken old abilities >>

Hone your ancestral skills for being outdoors in Nature. With a little training, they’ll revive and you'll be able to deepen your connection with the natural world. Our tips and practices show you how.

Step 5. Go deeper...

Practice engagement >>

Relate to Earth and Nature. Use little things you pick up outdoors as portals to deeper empathy and understanding of realm, region, and kinship. Our products describe the approach and give you regionally unique examples.

Perceive more by tapping into our collective knowledge. Lifetimes of study have revealed hidden forces and events that shape Nature. Our science distillations deliver the insight you need for a deeper understanding of your region.

Step 6. Go beyond...

Use science >>

Step 7. Go outside...

get out on the land >>

Experience yourself in Nature. Land translates all the steps you’ve taken into the reality of a rocky slope, a forested hollow, or a trickling brook; it’s the place where connection happens. Our maps and interpretations show you the way.
