Today was absolutely gorgeous outside! I realized that in the winter the swamp protects us from the cold and wind by being down low and blocked by bushes and trees. In the heat of late spring we are protected from the hot sun by the fresh shade of new leaves. It is a perfect place to spend an afternoon and evening in any season.
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.
