I’ve never heard of “re-wilding” before. What does it mean?
In the simplest, broadest sense re-wilding means “to return to a more wild or natural state; it is the process of undoing domestication.”
In an ecological/conservational context it refers to the “restoration (of an area of land) to its natural uncultivated state (used especially with reference to the reintroduction of species of wild animals or plants)”.
Human re-wilding “encourages the conscious undoing of human domestication and the returning to the lifeways of (more land-based) cultures.” It is often “associated with primitive skills and learning knowledge of wild plants and animals... as well as development of the senses and fostering deepening personal relationships with members of other species and the natural world.” (Wikipedia)
Hi! I’m Brooke Smokelin! I’m a devoted naturalist and passionate environmental educator. I love creating experiences that awaken people to the beauty and intelligence of nature.
I studied Environmental Education in college many moons ago. Since then I’ve created a cornucopia of nature-oriented experiences. I’ve run summer immersion programs for kids and taught environmental education in private and public schools. I’ve co-directed an environmental art studio in upstate New York. I’ve led college students and groups of women on multi-day backpacking retreats. I’ve done a mountaineering expedition with the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). I’ve created nature therapy programs for trauma survivors after 9/11. You can read more about all the nature fun I’ve had here.
The short of it is, I’m an experienced, knowledgeable, and trustworthy nature guide and I’m really excited about this program.
