 “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

This class will focus on teaching your kids how to truly interact with the natural world. They will learn about  various insects, animals, sea life, and about the edible, medicinal, and ethnobotanical uses of plants and seaweeds. We will spend our days hiking, playing, learning, observing, journaling, and creating.
Cost: $15 for pre registered students and $20 for drop in. Ages 8 and up only please. Your child will need a well fitting backpack and sturdy hiking shoes that they can put on themselves. Drop off will be at a different location each week. 

Taught by Lindsay Best. Mother of 3 boys, naturalist, teacher and outdoor enthusiast. To register click here DISCOVERY KIDS
