The Natural Wonder Summit is a very special gathering for nature-based educators, administrators, and childcare providers. This three-day event is a joyful way to explore nature-based early childhood education and personal natural connection. We recharge with old friends and new as we celebrate outdoor play and learning!
This year's summit is held in partnership with the Delaware Nature Society at the beautiful Ashland Nature Center in Hockessin, DE. Our featured keynote presenters are Caylin Gans of Forest Schooled and Seth Mbanzare of Child & Nature Alliance Canada. Optional tours of Coverdale Farm and University of Delware's Labratory Preschool, as well as an opportunity to experience a natural wonder (spawing horsecrabs and shorebirds!) are available on Sunday.
ERAFANS will provide a professional development certificate at the conclusion of the event; training is pending MD and DE approval of training hours.
Please dress for the weather, as at least 50% of this event will take place outdoors. A casual networking campfire takes place Friday evening with ice cream social; lite breakfast and lunch provided on Saturday with a campfire happy hour from 5-7 p.m. - don't forget your canteen!
