Nature Walks will be held as requested.  All of our walks will be child-led. We will be talking about various ecosystems  along with the flora and fauna we see on our walks. The children may use their nature journals as they like along our walk.  We will stop to allow children to use all of their senses to further connect with nature. There will be a class fee as well as a material fee associated with this class.

Beach School meets once a month. We will be talking about the ecosystem, flora, and fauna, weather, and currents. We will have fun using our senses to play in the sand and water during open play time. There will be a fee associated with this class.

Forest School meets on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. We will be using the Oak Hammocks, Pine Flatwoods or Mangroves on the intercoastal.  We will arrive at basecamp led by the children.  All three locations have so much to offer as far as child exploration and sensory options. We will talk about the ecosystems and point out the Flora, and fauna present at our basecamps.  There will be hands on activities for younger children as well as our preteens/teenagers. Children ages 0-2 always have a fun time with all of the sensory options available to them. There will be a fee associated with this class
