Why Should You Visit Anake Outdoor School?
Between our information packet, videos and conversations with us by phone and e-mail, you will likely get a fairly good idea of your interest in Anake Outdoor School. However, there is really nothing like an in person visit to get a feel for this place, the people, and the class itself. Enrolling in the Anake program is a significant commitment of time and resources, and we are here to help you determine whether this course is the right match for you – something that we think you will feel in your gut as much as know in your head!
So, come spend a day with us! Work with our students to make fire without matches or a lighter. Harvest wild edible plants from the local fields and forest. Follow the tracks of a deer or coyote along the local rivers. And, perhaps most importantly, meet the instructors and talk with our current students and apprentices about their experiences in the program!
Upcoming Visit Days
Depending on the specific day that you sign up for, you will meet at our office in Duvall at 8:15 or at one of our local field locations as early as 7:45. Class will last until 3:00. At which time you will be returned to the day’s meeting location.

Fundamentals of healthy body position and movement will also be covered.
