Learn Your Land evolved out of a personal need.
Not only did I routinely ask myself these two questions, but I witnessed others asking the same two questions as well:
“Who are the naturalists in my area that can teach me about mushrooms, wildflowers, birds, and trees? Where are their events?”
My name is Adam Haritan. I currently reside in the Allegheny Plateau region of Western Pennsylvania, where I lead foraging classes, walks, and workshops. In addition to the services I provide, several other naturalists are hosting events throughout Pennsylvania with the intent to teach valuable skills about the land, including plant and mushroom identification, wild food foraging, birding, animal tracking, and countless others.
A few years ago, I realized that no central online resource existed to help promote Pennsylvania’s naturalists and events. Without any hesitation, I devised a solution to fix this dilemma.
Learn Your Land is a resource allowing you to search and connect with Pennsylvania’s naturalists by region and topic. It’s here for you to discover when and where great events are taking place. And it’s 100% free.
Why take the time to learn topics as ancient as the land itself?
Simple, really: The more we know about our land, the more connected we feel. And with this feeling of deep connection comes an incredible desire to protect and serve our land in beautiful ways.
Learn Your Land was built for you, an outdoor enthusiast and nature lover.
Thank you so much for visiting. I hope you enjoy the experience as much as I do!
