Summer Season Celebration & Nature Awakening 
July 9th, 2018

Discuss Nature processes and cycles, focusing on the current season. Discover how the season was celebrated in Human history. Enjoy a set of outdoor knowledge and sensory games to get to know each other while learning about Nature and our immediate environment.

The class includes the making of a decoration inspired by Summer & Nature (using Nature material if possible).

Closer to Nature is a collaboration between Earthwise Aware and the Center for Arts at the Armory. The program is designed for youth (12+) to explore and enjoy the natural world around the Armory through storytelling, nature & naturalist walks, sketching & journaling, art, and science.

Closer to Nature cultivates a deep understanding that Nature conservation starts right where we live, in our own backyards, city parks, and forests. The program aims at inspiring its participants to become mentors in their communities by taking part in awareness programs and sharing their knowledge with communities, schools, friends and family members.
