Sharing Nature trainings incorporate the latest research on play theory and why play is integral to profound learning. Our play-centered nature awareness games and methods create a dynamic atmosphere for learning new ideas and embracing new experiences, leading participants seamlessly into a greater appreciation for the natural world.
During our time together, you’ll learn innovative methods for sharing with others; immerse yourself in nature’s healing influences; and “actually experience what it’s like to be a part of the natural world.” At the conclusion of this training, you will have the tools and inspiration needed to make outdoor learning fun, dynamic, experiential, and deeply meaningful.
