Indigenous Forest Connections
Tour description: Talaysay Guides will create a calming, nurturing experience as we “open the door” to the medicine of the forest, inviting students to interact with nature in various meaningful and healing ways. Forest Connections, a land-based learning program, is designed for students to experience the land as a collective and in person. The students will be invited to engage in a series of activities providing an opportunity to connect to the forest with all the senses which inspires greater curiosity, creativity and connection with oneself.
What to wear/bring: good walking shoes, appropriate layered clothing for the weather and a water bottle. We emphasis dress to be warm.
