Our Mission

MEarth educates and inspires through environmental stewardship.

Our experiential, educational programs aim to encourage youth and adults alike to become better stewards of our selves, our communities, and our environment. At the ten-acre Hilton Bialek Habitat in Carmel Valley, California, we provide hands-on, expansive learning opportunities to schools, county agencies, partner nonprofits, local businesses, and interested citizens throughout Monterey County. This nationally recognized outdoor learning center includes extensive grasslands, bird habitat, monarch butterfly habitat, a pond, an outdoor amphitheater, a LEED-certified culinary classroom, outdoor kitchen with wood-fired oven, organic vegetable and herb gardens, heirloom fruit orchard, off-grid solar greenhouse, and native plant nursery.
