Wild Rose Education
At Wild Rose Education we teach people 'how to see', to become better observers, and how to take action in the world through our participant-centered learning experiences. We go beyond what has been and facilitate becoming what can be with environmental education program design, climate change empowerment, and experiential education trainings and workshops.
Our work is done collaboratively with larger institutions as well as independently through our own projects. Programming occurs in-person as well as virtually. Regional projects are common, yet national collaborations have become a staple product of Wild Rose Education.
Wild Rose Education is a lean and nimble, effective, sole proprietor, woman-owned, small business practice established in 2015.

Sarah is an asset because she studies, learns and then teaches in a way that helps me understand our complex world and she uses pictures to aid understand. She has taken many opportunities to go out into the world to learn and then construct presentations. I appreciate that she lives in our community.
