Oaks and Acorns

The main Oaks and Acorns program is held in 8-week sessions throughout the year and is as much for parents/caregivers as it is for children (ages 0-6). We’ll gather together to sing, play games, share stories, go on tracking adventures, and tap into deep nature connection. Activities are set up for children in order to support adult talking circles on topics near and dear to our hearts.

Activities for parents/caregivers and tots include: wildlife tracking, nature craft, stewardship projects, visiting the forest, timeless wanders and thrilling mini-adventures, shelter building, getting to know the plants, games that teach and stretch awareness, story, and song.

8 week sessions, Thursdays 10:00am-1:00pm, and some Saturdays 10:00am-1:00pm
Location: Foundation of Light School House, 391 Turkey Hill Rd
Fee: An 8-pack of Oaks and Acorns passes = $240 or $200 for members (see below) good at any of the Thursday or Saturday Oaks and Acorn programs

Our next session of Thursday Oaks and Acorns is January 10 – March 21 (no program on February 21), 2019 – 10 sessions total
