About The Event
We will start with a hike and making a nature loom with Mary Dudley. Mary is a passionate educator whose career has taken her around the country, from Cincinnati to Seattle to Boulder to Coral Gables and back. She strives to bring environmental education to students of all ages who seek to integrate nature into their daily lives and classroom curriculum. She is founder and board president of Westwood Grows and the Ecology Education Manager of the Civic Garden Center of greater Cincinnati, as well as Board Treasurer for Little Schoolhouse in the Woods.
As we work on our nature loom we will engage in an open forum Q&A. Please come if you have advice to share, or if you are looking to learn more about integrating nature based pedagogies. We can all use more like-minded people in our lives! Working in an outdoor setting with young children brings with it new opportunities and different challenges than a traditional classroom. This is an opportunity to discuss and share those challenges.
To make it more enjoyable for all, bring a finger food dish to share and we will be able to snack throughout our time together.
