Mini Muir Fall Journal

Mini Muir Fall Journal

Yesterday we had a much welcomed warm, sunny day in the park which certainly inspired my Muir quote selection.

After getting caught in Sunday's evening storm in Prospect Park with 6 young adventurers, I was more than happy to dwell on the sun for an afternoon before winter's darker days take over.

A Day in the Life of Simply Summer Nature Collective

A Day in the Life of Simply Summer Nature Collective

Today is the first day in 3 weeks I have not woken up at 6am, taken the train to Grand Army Plaza, greeted 10 curious children (plus 1 curious teacher), and PLAYED in the park.

Today is the first day in 3 weeks I have not built a fort, caressed an earthworm, eaten my meals on the forest floor, or accepted a leaf as payment for an imaginary pie.

Today is the first day in 3 weeks I am not covered in sweat, mud, bug spray, and sunscreen.

Mandalas and Me Journal

Mandalas and Me Journal

Sunday's Mandalas and Me walk was such an amazing exploration in Prospect Park! The young naturalists and I colored mandalas, created our own mandala out of natural objects, and investigated a patch of forest floor in search of connectivity and a greater story about the biodiversity of the park.
