Nature Leader Course – Don’t miss it!

Bee - EditedAre you comfortable taking groups outside?

Do you want to get more out of a NATURE experience?

Come learn and see through our naturalist’s eyes, have your participants enjoy the outdoors and develop the senses of wonder.

SADLY most kids do not play outside in a natural environment so this is a trip to a foreign place.

The Nature Leader Training goal is to inspire our participants to take groups outside and connect with nature.

  • November 21  – 9 am – 4:00 pmQU_logo_left_blue  See Details here
