In 13 years of offering Wild Earth, nobody has ever been turned away for lack of funds. This summer, our organization gave away more than $40,000 in summer camp financial aid and discounts.
More than 70% of this summer’s instructors were alumni of our programs! From the teen CITs all the way up to the Program Coordinators, this year’s instructors were an inspiring group of loving role-models for more than 400 children.
It was an incredible summer:
Finally, a big shout out to Simon Abramson and Mai McNamara, who did a stellar job co-directing the Wild Earth Summer Camp this year!

In 2004, David co-founded and, today, is the Executive Director of Wild Earth, where he seeks to help regenerate healthy community culture and create opportunities for people to connect with themselves, each other and the Earth. Prior to founding Wild Earth, David worked as a wealth advisor on Wall Street for twelve years before realizing a life dream – fully sharing in the care and parenting of his three children, and creating a small family farm. Today, the Brownsteins raise dairy cows, goats, chickens, bees and vegetables in season. David also maintains an active counseling practice called Root Connections, where he focuses on helping individuals, couples, groups and business leaders identify and manifest their unique vision.
