Seward Park Monthly Science & Nature Programs

Thursdays (Seward Park) 9:30-12:30 Sept 2019 through May 2020

Our experienced instructor Porcupine will guide kids on a wilderness adventure in observation and exploration of the natural world.  Our goal is to give children a positive experience outside that they will remember for a lifetime.  All of our programs employ a very effective educational technique called “Coyote Mentoring”.  This progressive teaching style practices artful questioning, being present, encourages creativity, and fosters imagination.  In our intellectual learning-journey we will study the plants and animals of the Seward and Seahurst Parks where we'll learn naturalist skills such as journaling, plant and animal identification, and animal tracking.

Free-play and less competitive games is a great way for our group to have loads of fun together.  Nature Connection and Awareness will be practiced fully but an equally important part will be respecting each other and creating a social atmosphere of respect and positive communication in our small community.

Each monthly program has a different science and a seasonal nature focus and instructors will meet the kids needs on their terms. Nature is always providing different mysteries, navigating educationally to an emerging subject that we will observe and explore. 

The ages for monthly programs will be 5-12 years old. Parents and children younger than 5 years old are welcome to attend for free with an enrolled child over 5 years of age. The cost per child is $20.  Programs last from 9:30 am-12:30 pm. No Dogs or strollers please.
