We offer outdoor teacher retreats, workshops, and seminars to provide responsive nature-based training, state by state, as members like you make requests. Retreats are more intimate than large conferences to encourage dialogue, interaction, and the growth of local networks for support. It's easy to host an event - let us know if you'd like to bring one to your town! 

Our signature certification is available in levels 1 - 3 with live and online options. With nearly 2,000 certified teachers, we can help you expand your knowledge and tools to facilitate meaningful nature-based learning, no matter the setting. Courses often fill, so don't delay if you want to join us! 

Up-Coming Nature-Based Training Events

You can learn more about our payment and refund policies here. Please note that by registering for an ANBE event, you give us permission to photograph and/or video you during the training. We use these images to share and promote our events. Speak up if you do not want us to photograph you! We look forward to meeting you at an up-coming event. (Psst! Remember your canteen and your rain gear!)
