Kindled Nature Program 

OVERVIEW

Kindled Nature Program is a place to learn, come alive, and have your stories heard while discovering nature.  Hosted by Willowell on our 230 acres of land, Kindled is a monthly nature mentoring program.

Each day, we arrive, play games and look at nature's mysteries in our ever-growing nature museum (a collection of nature artifacts that are meant to be touched and wondered about).

We start our day as a large group with gratitude for what we have by each sharing something we are grateful for. 

Then, we are off on our adventures in small age groups.  In these groups, throughout the year, we’ll learn and grow by:

  • Discovering new places through wandering and mapping
  • Getting into our senses, and learning to track and be detectives
  • Learning skills and making art & crafts

When the day is nearly over, we will come and celebrate the day with a big group game and sharing stories.  We will end with a folk tale or true story told by the mentors (Elders and Parents are welcome to come and listen if they want).
