It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon! It almost felt like early spring. First we made predictions and then we checked out the swamp. It is ever-changing and always new and mysterious! Students who were out last week noticed how little snow there was and predicted that the ice would have softened or thinned in the swamp.
I am an and outdoor educator with a master's in early childhood development. I taught elementary school for 20 years and now own Woods and Wetlands LLC, offering programs for local children to engage in nature study through play and exploration-based learning. My programs are all outdoors in whatever "wild" spaces are available. I live in Rockford, Michigan with my husband, dog, and three cats. My unique, therapeutic, one and a half hour programs help children to connect with the natural world and with themselves.
