So Much to Look forward to
Although we'll continue to work with the NB government to make it possible for a grassroots forest school like Wild Wonder to operate in this province, we're very grateful to have the opportunity to offer forest school in Amherst, NS. Jason and Julie have kindly invited us to use their beautiful 80-acre homestead and forest on the Nappan Road. As we plan for our upcoming Autumn program, starting on Oct. 12, we wanted to share some photos of this magical property.
The large productive garden and greenhouse will yield opportunities for children to experience the joys of a fall harvest. Plus, the firepit will ensure that we get a chance to try cooking over the campfire. For instance, we look forward to digging up some potatoes, roasting them over the fire and enjoying them as a snack.
We are looking forward to having a creek to explore. Children will enjoy checking out the creatures that inhabit this small waterway, and playing in its muddy banks. We will be interested to see how water levels change over the course of the season. Rubber boots will definitely come in handy!
We're also excited for the many acres of forest trails we'll have to discover. And who knows, we might meet some interesting friends along the way. We'll be hanging up hammocks for rest times in the afternoons. When we get chilled on a cold day, the strawbale cabin and its small wood stove will provide a nice warm space to relax.
We know that the children will love this beautiful Nappan property as much as we do!
We're really looking forward to forest school during the beautiful fall months! Only a few spaces remain in this program for 3-6 year olds. If you'd like to sign up your child, please visit our programs page for more information.
