Forest Days for Schools

Forest Days is a year long environmental education program and mentorship program for local schools. Landere works weekly with a class for the school year helping them establish a forest days outdoor classroom site and routine. A starter kit is provided at the end of the first year for the teacher to continue Forest Days with their class and integrate it into their curriculum in years to come. The second year, Landere is available to join monthly to provide a guest lesson. Emergent and inquiry based learning is utilized and can be connected to grade level standards at the teachers request. Building a relationship with the natural world, learning stewardship skills, and taking care of oneself outdoors in changing weather are at the heart of this approach. Play, exploration, and movement are also encouraged.
