Kindred Spirits: Native Ways and Giving Nature Thanks

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have to cancel this Kindred Spirits program scheduled for Saturday, November 4. Please accept our apologies. Send well wishes to our beloved Environmental Educator Jay DeGregorio who is ill. We expect Jay will make a full recovery and will be back at work in a couple of weeks.

Time: 10:00am-11:30am
Ages: All ages

This autumnal program for families will explore Native peoples’ traditions of living in balance with Earth and each other. This hands-on harvest time adventure will highlight the interdependence of all living things in nature and explore gratitude as taught by Native cultures found throughout North America.

About Kindred Spirits

Most of human evolutionary history was spent in environments that lack buildings and walls. But today most of us spend much of our life indoors, tethered to electronic devices. Kindred Spirits is a little nudge to get back outside. This monthly Saturday program series is designed to build a greater understanding between all beings of the Earth by exploring the mysteries of nature. By offering a shared experience that draws people together, participants will develop a stronger kinship with nature and each other.

Programs will take place rain or shine, with hands-on activities both indoors and out.
