Fresh Air Learning Training Opportunity …
March 2014 Weekend Workshop
Our first forest school training weekend was a great success! If you missed it, we’ll be running another the weekend of March 8th and 9th. The course runs from 9 am to 3 pm in Lynn Canyon Park.

What You’ll Learn
The weekend will be a combination of theory and practice. Learn how the philosophy of forest school is different from other outdoor learning, and learn techniques for guiding children without teacher-led activities. We’ll also spend time outdoors, playing and learning in the park, and you’ll come back with hands-on ideas to incorporate into your own program.
On Sunday morning, we’ll also learn about Coyote Mentoring with our guest instructors from Soaring Eagle Nature School. This workshop is designed to give mentors and educators tools for authentic and meaningful connections with their students. Participants will actively engage in and learn different ways of interacting with people, ecosystems, mentors and children. In each student and mentor, coyote mentoring develops the capacity for learning, problem solving and genuine expression and awakens a natural sense of wonder.
