About the Progam:

Friends of Rye Nature Center's Forest Kindergarten program is based on Swiss concepts and the principles of place-based education to encourage children's connection with the natural world and nurture their curiosities.

 

Some examples of activities and lessons include:

- Learning the basics of tools such as knives,    

  saws, hammers and drills.

- Practicing survival situation essentials such as  

  tracking animals, shelter construction, and fire    

  building.

- Foraging basics, dangerous and useful plant

 identification, and nut-free springtime edibles.

- And more!
