About the Summit
The Natural Wonder Summit is a very special gathering. More than straightforward conference, the Summit is an event for nature-based early childhood practitioners who want to recharge and celebrate! Feel the energy and kinship offered by others who have the same goals as you.

This year's summit has a special emphasis on bilingual programs. We are offering sessions in English y en Espanol! We will also welcome families and children to a portion of the summit designed as a pop-up nature play space. This will provide a wonderful example for attendees to see how nature play can unfold anywhere!
