Working Outdoors With Young Children
Throughout Winter

Webinar from December 3 and Resources

We’ve got them outside, now what do we do? Listen to our webinar where we addressed staying active and having fun in winter while making connections to developmental domains in nature-based education.

Our four dynamic panelists, Sarah Sheldon, Jennifer Olson, Maryfaith Decker Miller, and Jada Berg, provided several ideas of tried-and-true outdoor activities to inspire new educators as well as seasoned pros. Activity examples connect to learning domains for easy implementation into any existing curriculum requirements.

This event was co-hosted by Inside-Outside: Nature-based Educators of New England. Stay tuned for future webinars and collaborations by following us on Facebook!

Webinar from June 3 and Resources
Zoom Follow up with Panelists from June 10 and Resources

Panelists Amy Butler, Peter Dargatz, and Anna Dutke explore the ways in which nature-based philosophies have been successfully integrated into a variety of public school programs across the country. Learn how you can mobilize to lobby your local school systems to adopt safe and healthful nature-based approaches in response to COVID-19.

An outdoor-centric approach provides easier social distancing, boosts the immune system, promotes academic growth through hands on learning, and reduces stress fostered by today’s climate.  Learn more about the movement of nature-based education in public schools and how you can be an advocate for your school.

Our follow-up webinar featured our panelists in addition to special guest Cathy Jordan, answering questions from participants.
