Journey to the Heart of Nature guides students along an in-depth exploration of a personally selected site in nature. Stories from the lives of John Muir, Jim Corbett, J.

Over the course of five different visits, the chosen site is experienced on gradually deepening levels, nurturing a profound appreciation for the myriad wonders of nature.
