Autumn is in full swing and we couldn't be more thrilled for the change of season. Rain has fallen and our forest floor has gone from dry and dusty to moist and muddy! The trees are shedding their leaves and we're watching our "classrooms" transform. We've gone from da...

I always love September - the last taste of summer, first signs of fall, and a new batch of kids at Forest School! We’ve been busy this September meeting new friends, exploring the park, and settling into the rhythm of our days in the forest. Many of the kids were und...

With spring in full swing, the last few weeks of class brought many new animal sightings, especially on our trails to and from the lake. We found a knot of snakes sunning on a log by the lake one day, which let us watch them for many minutes – their tongues flickering,...

What a month was May! Sunny skies, bare feet, green forest and abundant animal sightings all made this an amazing (a-may-zing?) time to be out exploring the park. Our themes this month focused on growth, as we watched fiddleheads unfurling, followed bees as they pollin...
