Happy Winter Solstice friends!
We're a number of snowfalls in, but today marks the first day of winter and for some, an uptick in the pace of holiday prep. This time of year nature inspires us to hibernate and turn inward; but the stresses and demands of the holiday season often affect us in the opposite manner as we busily wrap gifts and make travel plans or ready our homes to welcome visiting family and friends.
For us, the Winter Solstice is a reminder to slow down, to reflect, and to celebrate the little things that add true meaning to our lives. It's this pause that can help us really tune in to the magic of the season and the opportunities for connection with others. ourselves, and the greater natural world.
Taking stock of our year here at The Nature Museum, we're so grateful for the incredible community we serve. Our efforts to facilitate stronger connections between adults and kids and nature would not be possible without you. So many of you have played a part in building this community through your participation and support and we are incredibly grateful.
If you haven't already, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to The Nature Museum before the close of the year. You can also help us moving into 2017 by making us your charity of choice on Amazon through their Amazon Smiles program. Your support is vital for the continued growth of our community and are ability to continue to deliver high-quality nature programming for kids and adults alike. See you in 2017!
Thank you again for a wonderful year. We wish you and your family a happy holiday season. See you in 2017!
