*Title credit to D.M., one of the creative young minds who attended Woods and Wetlands last week! He quietly studied some of his dripping wet cohorts and commented, “This class should be called, ‘Woods and WetKIDS instead of ‘Woods and Wetlands!'”
There was quite a bit of, “falling in,” on this day despite the new chill in the air. I thought there might be complaints of being cold (because wet doesn’t mix well with cold!) but not one of our explorers complained! They are hardier than I am!
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.
