For centuries they’ve been using nature in a sustainable way to survive and thrive! Join For-Mar Staff as we explore this connection through crafting, games, and digging a bit into their history.
May 10th, Fun Fungi!-Is it a plant? Is it an animal? It’s neither! It’s Fungi! Join us as we go on a fungi hunt to discover how many different types of mushrooms we have living here at For-Mar. We’ll attempt to sketch, dissect, and identify the different types of fungi we find.
May 17th, Nature Yoga and Mindfulness-Wear your comfy clothes because it’s time to enjoy the peacefulness of nature through mindfulness and yoga! We’ll stretch our bodies using fun yoga games and take a mindful walk-through nature using our five senses.
