Place-based Storytelling Resources

Below are stories written by Outreach Coordinator, Landere Naisbitt, that teach natural history, ecology, social emotional skills, and folklore and that highlight local species, seasons, places, and more. We use them as educational tools in our Forest Day programs, Wild Sun Catchers events and others.

Additionally, there are “Curriculum Connections” that help expand the learning found within the stories and offer ideas for how to further explore the topic as well and reflect and share thoughts about the story. Learn more about how we use storytelling in our programs by reading: Storytelling at Forest Days and Beyond.
