Get outdoors with your children and explore!
This walk is the first in a 3 part series of Family Walks on the first Sunday of April, May and June. Becky Settje, a RI Wild Plant Society volunteer and nature enthusiast, has a passion to share her love of flora and fauna with children.
On her family guided nature walks, Becky particularly engages children in identifying, plants, trees, insects and bird. She shares her knowledge of pollination, food chains, and soils if there is interest. Through her energetic, fun and “child-led” approach, children will learn to become nature detectives as they explore and observe the great outdoors.
The walk will be 1 1/2 mile hike. It include boardwalks and bridges through wetlands, highlights on beaver activity in the area and an emphasis on woodland plants and trees.
Becky has over 30 years experience working with children through various programs including Girl Scouts, 4-H and homeschooling school and for Garden in the Woods, the New England Wild Flower Society’s education programs at their native plant garden in Framingham, MA.
ALSO NOTE: Becky is also offering walks on a per request basis. Becky will work with you to coordinate the date, place and time of the walk and any specific topics, badge work or interests you would like included in your walk. To request a walk please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
