Nature Immersion Play and Learning Group Online!

Program Description:

We are offering an Online Forum in which you can join us, via zoom, to share your seasonal outdoor observations and experiences! This might include: nature noticings, games, outdoor cooking projects, stories, backyard nature activities, places to hike, etc. that you and your family are enjoying. This will be in place of a face-to-face program for now and in response to covid 19. Our virtual gatherings will take place one morning a week and provide time to reflect and share the experiences we have had with the natural world during the week before. We will offer ideas for locations to visit to observe seasonal happenings or partake in fun activities. There will be space for the group to co-evolve as well and take its own direction as we get to know each other and our interests. The hope is that this program will help us get outside more often to connect with the Land, and also help us create a space to be with each other in community during a difficult time.
