How does it work where you live? We do this naturally at home, but I wonder if it would fly in my area in an organized way!
Do you participate in Forest School?

And you're in Missouri? We moved here (TX) from Missouri. That's probably the best place ever to do something like that. Tons of parks/outdoor stuff and tons of people who like parks/outdoor stuff.
Have you done a search to see if there are any Forest Schools in your area? I did once and was surprised to find one a few miles from our house.
Did you see this blog? They have a list. https://mamookids.co...hools-in-the-us

We are in a wonderful forest school co-op that meets once a week for four hours on wooded land. We do a brief circle time, lesson, and story time during lunch, but otherwise it's free play in the forest.
It's an amazing program, but I think we may have to leave it because neither my 5-year-old (on the autism spectrum) nor my 4-year-old have gelled with the other children. Actually, my 4-year-old, who normally loves imaginative play, won't play with the other children because a couple of the boys were mean to him several weeks in a row.
I think we're going to take the plunge and just do our own forest program, if I can find another family or two to join us. Our property is wooded so it's a great spot.
I'd love to hear more about what kinds of things you're doing with this!
