Naturalist Journeys – Coming Back Home: Turning Towards Uncertainty, Wonder, and Connection with Amy Butler

February 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Every day we have opportunities to create experiences that help us connect with the natural world. From the bus stop to the mountaintops, nature invites us to wonder about patterns and seasonal rhythms that are constantly unfolding around us. These simple moments out of doors can cultivate stories of curiosity and awe that help us to rediscover our deep love for the world. In a time of compounded stress and anxiety about our current climate crisis, nature is our guide to restoring a healthy and balanced dynamic between ourselves, one another and the earth.

About Amy Butler: Amy is the author of Educating Children Outdoors – Lessons in Nature-Based Learning and was the former Director of Education at NBNC for fifteen years. Amy has committed to connecting with nature in her role as teacher, ski lift operator, gardener, mother, and backcountry explorer. Through metaphors, storytelling, photographs, and selected readings from her book, Amy will share nourishing practices that help turn us towards regenerating connection in our communities.
