Exploring the educational side of Nature
We welcomed back some familiar faces and a few new ones, too. It is fantastic to see this great interest in our own back garden! We hope to see a continued rise in interest in Forest and Nature School at home and around the world.
Ireland is home to the youngest population in the EU. With 25% aged 18 or under. Of this 25% it is estimated that 80% do not meet the Government Physical Activity Guidelines. Unchecked this will lead to serious impacts on the emotional, physical and mental well being among the youth.
Ireland has a diverse array of flora and fauna and a rich historical connection to nature. Forest School allows children to gain confidence for exploring and discovering the interconnectedness of their surroundings. Rebuilding this connection will have numerous and long lasting benefits for us as a society and also for the natural environment.
Certified Forest School Leader, Marion-Edler Burke will be hosting more classes over the year, with all dates here.
