March 23rd: (Chelsea Denny, Youth Development Educator)

Hi Everyone! Today is my first day of working from home, the office is closed until further notice as a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19. I hope you are all staying healthy and finding constructive things to do while you're at home. With that being said...

I have a healthy chunk of curriculum at the office I would like to showcase to you all over the next few weeks. These binders and books have been left to collect dust the past few years. If you see any that you are interested in let me know and I can put it aside for you or find a way to help you gain access to it sooner.

ACCESS NATURE is a fun and educational guide that helps you dive deeper into the outdoors with kids of all ages. There are multiple pre-made nature scavenger hunts and hands-on experiential learning opportunities that just feel like playing outside!!
