The Barnhart Prairie has it's very own Nature School for students ages 3-5!

The Barnhart Prairie is home to Bluestem Hall Nature School.

Bluestem hall nature school fosters rich learning, place-based literacy, and a deep and lifelong sense of belonging to the natural world through slowness and freedom. In modeling healthy relationships that establish trust of self, trust of others, kindness, empowerment, and body autonomy, our students will have the support to be their authentic selves

What is a nature-based education?


Simply put, it is using the natural environment as our greatest teacher. While nature based programs have the same goals for child development as any other high-quality program, the curriculum and teachers achieve these goals through our State Protected Prairie Restoration.


Nature schools are also known for their progressive, inclusive, and play-based philosophy for learning. Email find find out more!
