(CE) Master Naturalist Mondays- Remembering Our Nature: Rebuilding Connections to Heal the Land
As naturalists and conservationists, we regularly form connections with the land and the creatures who live there. Unfortunately, too many humans have lost those relationships - with dire consequences for our own well-being and that of our planet. How can we, as educators, think about healing these broken connections? In this talk, we will explore what’s possible when we, and those we serve, come home to ourselves in nature. To prepare, please bring a natural item (e.g., leaf, pinecone, feather, houseplant).
