About this Nature-Based Training

You can expect a hands-on day of outdoor fun in nature! We'll use the campus of A'mazing Acres to highlight nature play-spaces, risky play, and using the environment as the third teacher. Presenters share insights and activities based on their work in nature preschools, forest kindergartens, or other nature-based programs. Training is ideal for educators working with children ages 3-6 years old. All are invited to join us Friday evening for a campfire, networking, and a presentation from our Keynote speaker. Light breakfast and lunch are included on Saturday, but bring your canteen for drinks. 

ERAFANS will provide a professional development certificate at the conclusion of the event. Please dress for the weather, as 100% of this event will take place outdoors, and don't forget your canteen!
