Welcome to Natureways
To provide fun, inspirational, and educational opportunities
in natural settings for children and in doing so help foster a positive connection with our natural world.
I am really excited to share my passion for the great outdoors. At Natureways we share a special relationship with our natural surroundings. Fostering this relationship through the senses is key in developing an understanding, appreciation, and above all, respect for our natural landscapes.
During this electronic age it is important for humanity to remember where we came from to see clearly where we are going. Richard Louv's book, Last Child in the Woods, talks about the "Nature Deficit Disorder". Children and adults need to reform their connection with nature. The benefits are boundless. Reducing our global footprint, recycling, conserving energy, etc., mean more to people, and especially children, if they have developed that bond. At Natureways we are privileged to have such a great location to share fun and exciting outdoor programs.
See you on the trail.
