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

Learn how you can actively engage children with nature through environmental art activities and foster a deep love for the natural world.

In this hands-on workshop, Marghanita Hughes will share activities on how to nurture a deep love and respect for the natural world through creative expression. Participants will create their very own meaningful nature art and learn how storytelling with nature can bring about powerful change and attitude. We will explore how nature art can be integrated in your programming to instill an everlasting love and appreciation for the natural world. Nature Art develops a connection to all forms of life in the places in which we play and learn, which leads to a desire to live more sustainably in these places now, and in the future. These simple activities are powerful and inspire us all to be good stewards for the environment and to take action in our school, home, office and community. Max 20
