Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

"Walkshops" and workshops provide hands-on opportunities to learn strategies and techniques for connecting urban children to nature.

Exploring a Sense of Place will help you with your own process of discovery and reconnection with the natural world where you live. You will gain an understanding of every ecosystem as having its own deep time geologic story and weather and climate patterns resulting in the particular plant and animal wildlife as well as indigenous wisdom from people living connected to place over thousands of years.

The session shows how Exploring a Sense of Place progresses through every season, in every weather — and how by doing this program together, we form community, deepen our roots with those around us and create new patterns of awareness in our lives.

Our time together includes an immersion experience in near-by Stanley Park with a naturalist and your own copy of an Exploring a Sense of Place guidebook that will deepen you in your own process of awakening to the place where you live.

Max Capacity: 20
