Spend Saturday mornings in the wild woodlands of Oxley Nature Center with qualified, caring adults. Margaritte Arthrell-Knezek & Mary Seabourn will lead children in the Junior Coyote program. We will cultivate a child’s innate love of nature, their desire to learn, and bring them to the edge of their comfort & awareness. This nudges them into the place of awe, excitement, wonder & gratitude for all the gifts and lessons nature has to offer. With games, stories, naturalist challenges, songs, and long walks through the woods, children connect deeply to the earth. Through the seasons they gain experience with skills such as primitive fire-making, woodland shelter-building, map & compass navigation, wild-edible gathering & preparation, wildlife tracking, sensory awareness, and bird language. Using the Coyote mentoring curriculum we guide children to a place of awareness that leads to many teachings about the self, family, and community. This program is a collaboration between Oxley Nature Center, Under The Canopy and Roots of Wonder.
