"If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, then let us allow them to love the earth before we ask them to save it."

David Sobel

Mission & Vision


We envision a world where all youth find their strength in nature, know how to tend the wild within, and live compassionately with the earth always in mind.



Merrohawke Nature School, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, provides meaningful outdoor education programs ashore and afloat, for all ages, in all seasons, to inspire a deep connection to land and sea, a strong sense of self, and compassion for all.

Summer 2016

Registration for 2016 is Open!   Programs take place ashore and afloat for all ages. Teens may also opt for one of our overnight expeditions: rowing a dory along the Great Marsh or camping at Star Island at the Isles of Shoals. There’s plenty of ways to connect to nature at Merrohawke. Join us!
