The word shelter has a multitude of meanings, concepts, and designs. Each and every one of us living on this diverse planet have inhabited unique shelters that are as varied as the people whom live within, or the environment in which they sit upon. Come see what shelter means to us and explore ways in which you can build your own shelter. Using only a few tools given to you by your guides, and utilising what Mother Nature has provided, head out into the forest and build a shelter that is as individual as you.

About the Trails:

The LUNA Project is set a midst a network of trails on a beautiful eighty acre section of reclaimed farmland and forests near the quaint village of St. George, Ontario.

The 4km multi-use trail network allows visitors to explore the property and the various eco-regions it supports. The trail follows through an old growth hardwood forest dominated by beech, hickory and maple before a sudden transition into a forty year old regenerative forest marked by stands of red pine.

Continuing along, guests will also be taken through the marshy floodplains of Beaver Creek, a hauntingly beautiful hawthorn grove, and an undulating prairie of wildflowers and grasses. Each distinct section is home to it's own variety of wildlife and provides us with the opportunity to observe the different species all in our own backyard.

About the Project:

The LUNA Project is a working model of low impact impact sustainable living. Located in Southern Ontario, our diverse landscape of meadows, forest, fields and wetlands inspire the visitor to view their natural environment in a whole new way.

Learning Unique Natural Alternatives is what we're all about; promoting self sufficiency, confidence, and respect for our natural world. Our site is a true testament to our vision. With 90% of our infrastructure being portable yurts powered by renewable resources, and a strong "buy local" philosophy; LUNA has a very small footprint on its surrounding environment, truly practicing what we teach.
