Developing the skills and techniques to effectively share nature with others has never been more important than now. Though society is increasingly disconnected from the natural world, we’ve seen more people than ever head outdoors during the pandemic to seek beauty, adventure, and stability, illustrating the value of nature for mental and physical wellbeing.
In this course, you will hone your ability to develop and facilitate engaging experiences in nature, help others find meaning in their experiences, and tease out relevance when engaging with any subject matter. Whether you are a teacher, park ranger, parent, grandparent, artist, community leader, or mentor, the skills and resources attained through this course will empower you to positively impact your loved ones and community with the benefits of connecting to nature.
