Class Registration: Exploring Our World and Ourselves Through Nature


Our therapeutic nature program for elementary ages is an introduction to the natural world. Through hands-on activity in the garden, games, crafts, stories, song and adventure children learn how to take healthy risks in a safe way while developing a deeper connection to themselves, the natural world and their community. Skills introduced include plant identification, animal tracking, shelter building, fire safety (lighting a fire using various methods, fire structure, extinguishing a fire, the responsibility of using fire), bird language, sit spot, nature journaling, gardening, outdoor cooking, storytelling, and hazard awareness.
