What you'll do

Our Nature Connection Adventures are designed for folks seeking a unique outdoor experience in our beautiful mountain town. We’ll begin by exploring our house and yard, which we are transforming into a sustainable, regenerative, permaculture paradise. We will then explore the San Bernardino National Forest on trails known only to locals that begin right outside our door - no crowded trails or parking issues! During our adventure, we’ll take in stunning views from these trails and get up close and personal with native wildlife. We're all about customizing our experiences to the wants and needs of our guests and the amazing changing seasons on our mountain. I have extensive knowledge of the plants and animals we are likely to encounter and will be happy to share that knowledge with you and/or to quietly take in the natural beauty we will encounter on our nature saunter. I have also been teaching Tai Chi for over 20 years and will be happy to offer an introductory lesson as part of your experience.

Peter

I am co-founder of Hilltop Education Connections and being a nature guide is central to who I am. As a child, I loved playing in nature. My love of nature and sharing what I’ve learned with others inspired me to get a PhD in science education at UCB. I have been a public-school teacher in CA, professor in NYC, and Education Director at NeXT (with Steve Jobs). After that, I moved to The Farm, an intentional community in TN, and began taking children and families on nature adventures as a teacher at, and principal of, The Farm School and as Program Director of the Kids to the Country program. Since moving to Idyllwild, I've been leading nature experiences with children and families, taking in the stunning views and amazing wildlife inhabiting our hills. As the great sage, Jerry Garcia used to say, "what a long strange trip it's been."

Where you'll be

We love where we live and are excited to share the natural beauty that surrounds us. We are developing our yard into a regenerative, sustainable, permaculture paradise. The San Bernardino National Forest begins where our yard ends and is both beautiful and serene, offering stunning views of Tahquitz Rock, Diamond Valley Lake and panoramic views of the surrounding area. And the plant and animal diversity along the trails is amazing!
