What a beautiful, life-filled day! We spent the day at the swamp and saw so MUCH life! There are beautiful spring medicinal plants growing up intermixed with one of best teachers - Poison Ivy, so we had to be very mindful of where we put our bodies and our items down.

We had such a fun surprise when we arrived at pickup this week! There is a new sign at the entrance to the Preserve and among the list of guidelines, it says "No Campfires" and then in small print "Except for Nature Connect Class"! The kids were so thrilled! We only wo...

Because the day stared off cold, we worked together to create a small fire in the fire pan, although we did not need it for the whole day! Today we worked on our fort building skills, and even made a flag pole for the cedar area that we explored! 

After working out our...

Today was a little chillier, so after opening circle, we worked on a friction fire challenge to aid in the start of the fire, while some of us revisited our fort building skills or played a round of stick toss.

What a beautiful day! The air warmed up quickly and even though there was frost on the ground when we got to the woods, we were almost hot at lunch time. We started off our day with gratitudes and a welcome to the land.
