Free webinar, 3/18! Staying Connected thru Nature Play & Learning

  • 1.  Free webinar, 3/18! Staying Connected thru Nature Play & Learning

    Posted 23 days ago
    Dear Teachers,
    Let's re-frame this hiatus from the coronavirus as an opportunity for more healthy nature connection with children! The Eastern Region Association of Forest and Nature Schools (ERAFANS) is offering a FREE webinar that explores the many wonderful possibilities afforded by nature play and learning for parents, teachers, and of course - kids! We will consider how to stay connected as a community by interacting with nature and examine ways to use technology to bring us closer to nature and each other. We hope this free resource is helpful to teachers and parents alike.

    Join champions of nature-based education Ayana Verdi, founder of Verdi EcoSchool and homeschool mom in Melbourne, FL; Monica French, co-founder and director of Wild Haven Forest Preschool & Childcare in Baltimore, MD; and Monica Wiedel-Lubinski, founding director of ERAFANS and co-author of Nature Play Workshop for Families (Quarto Press: 2020) to discuss ways we can stay connected through nature play and learning.

    If you have specific questions, please feel free to email them in advance to director@erafans.org.

    Hello Monica,

    Very excited about this conversation, and disappointed to find that the Zoom meeting is at capacity. Will a recording be made available afterward?

    Be well,
    Christine

    I had the same experience as Christine (and I imagine many others as well), and would love access to a recording of the webinar if possible! Or maybe a second webinar!?! :)

    Thanks for sharing this important learning,
