I have come to love these small groups of explorers. On this day we could have really used our “shed,” full of supplies, but since people (kids on weekends or evenings?) keep disassembling it and taking our stuff, I had to haul it home for the summer until I can locate a more sturdy and lockable vessel for the fall. Any donations toward something like that would be most welcome!
Toward the end of our session we passed through the yard belonging to the land-owner who allows us to learn on his property. We met him for the first time ever and everyone nicely thanked him for letting us explore there. Thank you, Mr. Larry!
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.
