“I wonder if much that ails our society stems from the fact that we have allowed ourselves to be cut off from that love of, and from, the land. It is medicine for broken land and empty hearts.”

Nature Education

Nature lessons can be delivered at your school or organization; or we can arrange to perform lesson in a natural setting in a location convenient to you. Lessons can be customized to your needs or you can select from a variety of lesson plans I have already created. My current catalog of lessons are designed for Pre-K through 5th grade. Typically lessons are 30-60 minutes in length depending on your schedule and preference.

Please contact me to learn more.

Special Events

Bring nature education and activities to your event. I can come deliver a customized nature activity or learning center to your organization or home.

A personal guided mindful hike with a pop-up forest picnic can also make a unique and beautiful gift for someone special.
