Limited Capacity filling up

Do you ever longingly stare out your window and wonder how I can bring young people outside and experience the wonders of natural world? Do you ever think how can I do outdoor education in the city? Or are you curious about getting young people excited about being in natural places? Then this workshop is for you!! Come and learn some easy ways of getting young people outside, get them observing and noticing the nature that is right outside their window, and when they're ready, get them on the trails! This workshop will not only focus on activities that encourage observation, interaction with and appreciation of the natural world, but it will also discuss the science of why it is important for us all to spend time outside. If you are seeking the outdoors, spend some time with us!
