Over the past twenty years SHAWN BERRY has served as an outdoor educator, youth and adult mentor, group facilitator, and guide. From 2015 to 2018 he was the Director of the Outdoor Program at Manzanita School in Topanga Canyon, where nature connection is a fundamental principle of the school’s educational model. Currently he is the founder and director of First Nature, an organization committed to facilitating deep connection with nature and the planet so as to cultivate “right living” and a thriving and sustainable environment for all life.With the growing body of scientific data documenting the correlation between mental health and our connection to the natural world, Free From The Box are excited to have Shawn on board.
