Embrace your Tree Community
July 13th, 2018

Learn about forest & tree communities (their behavior, their interaction with one another). Investigate their ecological role and importance to us.

Explore the trees in our immediate environment. Getting out in nearby parks, discuss, sketch and describe the trees that we see, without forgetting to observe and record the species that depend on them.

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.
