At the trailblazing Karner Blue Education Center in Blaine, children with special needs benefit from nature-based teaching tools, including a 5-acre school forest.

Karner Blue's natural design and mission are strategic. "Nature builds self-confidence, self-esteem, and connection to others," says Val Rae Boe, the school's principal. "Nature is like this little piece that makes [our students] whole."
