A program that 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, feeding chickadees, 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.
Parent/adult discussions center around: options in education, community building, parenting stories, art of questioning and other mentoring techniques, decolonization, community service, rites of passage and child development, stewardship, storytelling and music.Register Now!
