Upon request, we can arrange a variety of personalized on-site nature activities! Some of the educational nature hikes and tours you can choose from include:
A) Wilderness survival
Based on the ancient teachings of "the Sacred Five," we will explore the empowering ways to feel and live more "at home" in the wilderness.
With only natural materials from the local land, we will: build shelter, purify water, create fire from friction, and find food.
B) Learn Plants through Art
Plants and trees speak to us all the time - through a secret language.
Magically, it is the same language as art.
Through drawing and painting we will learn how to decode this secret language to discover who they are, what they are saying & their edible & medicinal qualities.
You can bring the practise home with your own field journal and plant identification kit.
Meet the majestic, green giants of the forest -- in this activity-enhanced walk and talk, we will learn trees significant role in the local ecosystem as well as their gifts to human culture as food, medicine & tools. In the context of the last glacial movement, we will read the local landscape to tell the story of its past.
