COVID-19 Earth Arts changes for the 2021/2022 season

Since 1999, in the woods, meadows, and streams of our beautiful Finger Lakes region, Earth Arts has offered nature-based mentoring programs that connect children and adults to a deeper sense of self, community, and the Natural World. For the last 8 years, we have been running programs from a one room school house in Ellis Hollow (Lantern Program). We are no longer at this location, and for Summer 2021 and the 2021/2022 school year, we will be running programs at Frosty Hollow in Slaterville Springs. Here are the Details!

Regarding my individualized virtual nature awareness programs

I see my role on these 1 on 1s as:

  • An adult in the child’s life that pays very close attention to their questions and interests.
  • A curious adult that has a very close relationship with the natural world and isn’t afraid to show it!
  • A person to “catch” a child’s stories, especially about some interaction in nature that they have had.
  • A model as someone that uses Nature connection as a way to bolster my physical and emotional well being.
