We’re building a world-class environmental learning center, designed to meet this moment.
At Tremont, we deeply believe that connection to place and to each other enriches our lives and strengthens our communities. We all belong in nature, and we succeed in our mission when we facilitate inclusive outdoor learning that contributes to each participant’s sense of belonging in the outdoors and the Great Smoky Mountains.
Tremont has over 50 years of expertise in helping people discover the natural world around them. We embrace the idea of nature as not that which is untouched by humanity but where all life thrives. As such, we work each day toward a thriving planet for all.
We envision our community enhanced by lifelong learners in pursuit of wonder and curiosity about the world around them. We envision an education system that integrates nature-based, outdoor learning as fundamental to the success and health of its students – where youth regularly and frequently engage with local and national parks throughout their formal education. We envision a workforce that embraces the possibilities of our future, taking inspiration from nature and seeking innovative solutions to some of our society’s biggest challenges.
We have a vision where people of all ages, through a connection to the world around them, come to imagine new possibilities for themselves and for the planet.
To achieve this vision, we are embarking on an ambitious journey, our Keystone Campaign, to establish our second campus and build an unparalleled education center that increases our impact and provides transformative learning opportunities for youth and adults.
