Choose an Experience

Add unique, private paid experiences to your stay. The following tours are all hosted by Lisa. I’ve been immersing myself in nature at White Sky Woods for over a decade. On my nature outings, I have made many observations, asked a lot of questions, read countless books and learned a lot along the way from mentors. I love sharing what I’ve learned with others. While my degree is not in natural sciences, my passion is and I specialize in what’s right here at White Sky Woods. 

All experiences are outdoors and are subject to being cancelled or rescheduled due to weather. 

Payment for tours is due at the start of the tour. Cash, Check or PayPal is accepted.

This tour is for those who want to get out in nature at a pace that encourages you to slow down, stop, ask, observe, and learn. We’ll walk approximately 1 ½ – 2 miles on mostly flat terrain. Along the way we’ll stop, observe, share, and learn. We’ll ask and answer questions like: What kind of tree is this? Is this Lichen or Moss? What direction am I facing, how do I tell without the sun? What animal made this track? How did this massive rock get here? What bird sound is that? Each tour is unique since it depends on what nature delivers!

 

Along the route, I’ll share the Jacobsville Sandstone history here at White Sky Woods and we’ll find evidence of it. We’ll talk about connection to place and leave no trace best practices when enjoying nature spaces.

Oftentimes people reach out wanting detailed information about how we planned for our move, building a yurt/yurt life, homesteading life, homeschooling, etc. We enjoy people’s interest and love sharing about our journey, but we appreciate that people understand we have limited time for giving free consultation. For guests who seek more in-depth consultation, please contact us to schedule time. We don’t have a specific framework for this experience because it depends on you! Tell us what you’re interested in hearing or learning about, and we’ll go from there.

We’ll ask and answer questions like: What kind of tree is this? Is this a good habit for a beaver? What animal made this track or scat? Whose bones are these and how did they get here? Where did this massive rock come from? What bird sound is that? Each tour is unique since it depends on what nature delivers!

We’ll talk about the best practice for being in nature, and ways we can enjoy nature spaces respectfully.
