Compassionate Counselling for Women of Vancouver, BC & the Lower Mainland

Nature with Curiosity

Basic Overview:

Parenting Workshop Nature

The city is full of nature. Children will be better citizens and have more respect for the environment if they notice and appreciate the natural world around them.

In this workshop we will learn easy ways to spot nature all around us and ways to draw your child’s attention to it. With these tips on “how to look” you will see things you have never noticed before even though you may have passed by it hundreds of times before.   After this workshop, you will know how to make any walk around the block a nature adventure. This workshop is a small group activity with hands-on time spent outside to practice your nature detection skills.

Workshop Take-Aways:

  • When you use these simple techniques with your children, it is fun and amazing to witness their wide eyed wonder as you awaken them to the nature.
  • Participants will leave with 1 nature book and a list of other nature resources your child might enjoy.
