The Outside Institute was founded in 2017 in the Catskills by Laura Chávez Silverman. Its mission is to foster a greater connection to the natural world. By nurturing humanity's powers of observation and innate affinity for the wild, the institute strives to inspire joyful awareness and an essential reciprocity between all beings. The year-round program includes guided nature walks, forest immersion, sustainable foraging education, wildcrafting workshops and botanical mixology.
