Raise your hand if you’re interested in learning tools and activities to integrate Nature Education into your practice! Now raise your other hand if you don’t feel safe or comfortable implementing outdoor/nature education/play. For those of you that have both hands raised, this presentation is for you! In this workshop, we will focus on how to feel safe and comfortable integrating Nature Education into your practice while sharing ideas that make this integration accessible to implement and bring to your program immediately. In doing so, we will begin by discussing the definition, history, philosophy and benefits of Nature Education, how to integrate Nature Education in any and all child care facilities and school settings, requirements for a successful Nature Education program, policies & procedures (weather, wildlife, First Aid, etc.), program supplies, recommended gear, resources, team building activities & group cooperative games and processing & reflection circles. Come join us for a fun and engaging presentation, where my goal is to inspire you to learn these tools and activities to take back with you to your practice.
