Using Nature as a Tool for Childhood Development: Human Nature Series

When: April 14, 2019, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Add to Calendar: iCal | Google

In our increasingly virtual world, kids are playing outside less than ever before… and the effects are apparent! Discover how the natural world offers the perfect environment for children to build strong bodies, minds, and senses.

The second workshop of the Human Nature Series, Using Nature as a Tool for Childhood Development, will be held this Sunday, April 14, here at Shaver’s Creek. Guest speakers will include Sue Ashead from Timbernook of Central Pennsylvania, a nature-based developmental program for children, and Little Growers, a group started by a local little girl that is focused on getting kids outside and enjoying nature!
The workshop will start at 1 pm with short presentations from our guests, nature walks led by kids for kids, and lots of time to be creative and play freely in nature. Bring your kids and learn how outdoor play builds strong, healthy, and happy children! Come prepared to be outside — outdoor fun can be had rain or shine!

This series of public workshops will help our community to understand the countless benefits of connecting our health to the natural world and give attendees the opportunity to expand their toolbox for using nature to build a healthier life.

Registration for this program is appreciated. The event is free thanks to the support of our members; however, we will accept donations.
