Nature Connections Activity Notebook

We here at Outdoor Education Adventures believe strongly that nature connection is very important for our mental and physical wellbeing and for the health of our planet and all living things with whom we share it. This belief is what drives our passion for this work and we are dedicated to providing opportunities for nature engagement even if we can’t be with you in person.

We will be posting a new entry into our Nature Connections Activity Notebook each week to share ideas and activities for engaging with nature, strengthening sensory awareness and observational skills, as well as knowledge of our local natural history and ecology. 

Keep up to date with what we are doing on our social media channels: Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube channel and make sure you are signed up for our email list.

We would love to hear from you about what programs and resources you would find most valuable at this time. We have created a very short survey and would appreciate your response. Here is a link to the survey> 

We hope that you find these resources in our Activity Notebook entries helpful and fun. If you have questions or just want to check in we would love to hear from you.
