About First Nature
Where the past, present, and future of leadership come together for the dignity and benefit of all.
At First Nature Foundation, our mission is to help program participants grow their emotional resilience, self-confidence, and mental health, by partnering with nature and our wise herd of horses, who help facilitate these outcomes.
At our beautiful and serene facility in Saint Cloud, we offer programs for a variety of audiences, including veterans, children, teens, and other audiences to evoke more of their innate potential for more success in school, career, relationships, and community. We also work with leaders and teams in organizations to enhance their capacities for engagement, collaboration, and generative outcomes.
