CONNECTING PEOPLE, NATURE AND OPPORTUNITY

Home Page


Venturing outdoors, Netwalkers learn how to identify plant forms, like poison ivy, wild herbs, trees. They learn how to respect insect life, such as ticks, bees, spiders. Through art and manipulatives, they study the building blocks of life - atoms, molecules, DNA, seeds and eggs.


Netwalking’s objective is to develop children’s awareness of nature’s lessons and synchronicities and to show how those guide us in creating, growing, healing and sustaining our planet and in nurturing our own physical and spiritual well-being. One of the greatest benefits of these Netwalking events are the new friendships and fun stories that develop while engaging with one another and connecting with nature.
