Are you looking for something to help you feel and stay more grounded during these uncertain times? Interested in some inspiring ways to spend time outside with your family?
Have you been spending more time in your yard and would like to learn more about the plants and animals where you live?
During this four-week online class, which meets twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, participants will engage in fun activities and crafts right in their own backyards.
Each day will offer an online opening circle in which our facilitators will introduce an activity. Participants will then have one hour to go outside and complete the activity. There is an option 20-30 minute online sharing that participants can come back to, but is not required.
The class starts on Thursday April 16th and will meet from 9:30-11: 30 with an hour break in the middle to explore the day's activity.
In this program you will:
Learn about flora and fauna in your area, including edible and medicinal plants that could be growing in your own backyard
Establish simple routines to stay connected to the natural world
Strengthen your own naturalist knowledge by acquiring new learning tools
Experience how birds are an indicator of movement through a landscape
Develop tangible ways to stay centered and grounded, wherever you may be
Learn how to move and be in the outdoors, so that you will see more wildlife
