Twin Eagles Wilderness School · Nature & Wilderness Survival School
Life is meant to be full of connection and meaning!
Welcome to Twin Eagles Wilderness School, our nature and wilderness survival school! We're glad you made it. Since you're here, you probably have a great love for the Earth. Whether it's wilderness survival, permaculture, or getting your kids outside more, you really value nature. Deep in your bones, you know that "It takes a village to raise a child", and that "You must be the change you wish to see in this world". You believe in this new dream for our world that is conscious, holistic, regenerative, and centered on nature, yet perhaps you're not quite sure how to make it real. You see that the old ways just aren't working, yet the new paths are still emerging.
Whether for yourself or your children, you're looking for mentors, and perhaps for a whole community of like-minded folks to support the journey of deeply connecting with nature, others, and self. You feel that there is a deeper meaning to life, you feel that nature weaves through this meaning, and you're searching for experiences that bring that meaning to life.

Looking at our Youth Programs?
We may be a perfect fit if:
- You want the best for your kids. You want meaningful experiences where your children connect deeply to nature, community, and self.
- You want your kids to have deeply connective experiences that facilitate health & vibrancy like learning wild edible & medicinal plants, wilderness survival, or wildlife tracking.
- You want your kids to be part of a program with smaller group sizes and more instructors, one that facilitates real world challenges and believes youth are capable of so much more than the modern world asks of them.
- You want real mentors for your kids, people who will really show up for them and foster resiliency, responsibility, a work ethic, health, happiness, compassion, self-confidence, gratitude and inner peace.
- You’re ready for "the village" to help support raising your children. You yearn for a web of strong mentoring relationships around your kids that can holistically raise them into their fullest selves.
Hi, we are Tim Corcoran and Jeannine Tidwell, co-founders and co-directors of Twin Eagles Wilderness School. We started Twin Eagles out of a deep love for this most beautiful Earth of ours, and from a place of hope. We are nature based mentors, who believe that our role on Earth as humans is that of stewards, and that in order to take care of the Earth we need to deeply connect with it. Wilderness survival, permaculture, and herbal remedies are just a few of the approaches we use to facilitate deep nature connection. We also believe that this level of deep connection is best facilitated through mentoring. We believe that in order to really make a difference, we must be able to work together as people, as community. At Twin Eagles, we are centered on the age old truth that in order to change the world, we must first "Know Thyself".
