Learn About Nature

Diane Saxe, Ontario’s past Environmental Commissioner, states that speaking up on behalf of nature is key in order to protect the natural systems on which our lives depend.

We are more likely to understand that connection when we feel a personal connection with nature. Slow down. Learn the names of plants and animals.  Be mindful of the sights, sounds, smells, and textures of the natural world. 

Healing Forest provides activities, reflections and videos which will take you on a journey of inner change and growth through nature in order to nurture a calm mind, resiliency, a healthy body, and bring more peace into your life. The Nature Calm course offers over 100+ ideas for your mind and body, heart and soul.

Educators collaborated to create this collection of nature activities, Pathways to Stewardship and Kinships, organized by age, for kids of all ages.
