Wilderness Awareness Immersion!

Sunday, March 5th, 2017 at 9:45am – 4pm

A daylong introduction to the art of wilderness awareness. We will venture into the forest to explore wildlife tracking, plant identification, bird language, nature connection and more. Through fun games and experiential activities we will build our awareness and connection of the natural world around us. We will be spending the day in Mount P’kols Park (Mt.Doug).
