November 13, 14, and 15 1pm-4pm: Children aged 7-14 are welcome to join us for a no-pressure exploration of writing about what we see, feel and discover while playing in nature. Cost is $10 per session or $25 for all three.
Anne Theresa White has been mentoring young writers in the community for several years, and her daily walks at the Nature Centre feed her creative spirit. She has even written a magical children's book set there. She and staff naturalist, Paula Laita, will combine nature walks and outdoor games with writing activities to nurture kids expressive potential.
