Owl Creek Programs and was founded by Kevin Glenn, a native of Bloomington. We are an educational organization that uses naturalist skills, wilderness survival skills, and animal tracking to bring people into a closer connection with the natural world. Our approach to teaching draws upon our understanding of indigenous ways, studies in brain science, and our own careful observation and passion for finding creative ways to inspire people to do things they've never done before and to discover the natural world.Our unique approach to nature-connection has been called "cultural mentoring" as we intentionally facilitate a dynamic culture of awareness around our programs. Some of the ways we accomplish this is through games, the art of questioning, stories, sensory awareness, a team of instructors working together, and allowing participants to add their voice. However, to really understand cultural mentoring it can take years of study and practice.Along with the topics listed, our programs also cultivate sensory awareness, gratitude, playfulness, nature-connection, teamwork, humor, and respect (of self, others, nature).
