Series Sessions-

6 Weeks of Specific Skill Set Learning - Geared towards older homeschoolers.

Field Study Series

Do you want to learn how to explore and investigate the natural world like a scientist? 





This 6 week series will help you learn what scientists do by participating in field studies and creating your own field study.  We will use scientific practices to study things like spider webs, lichen, pond critters, and butterflies.  It is amazing how much there is to discover and learn outdoors when you know how to observe, question, investigate and reflect. 

Dawn Dextraze, Sullivan County Natural Resources Education and Outreach Specialist will be leading this series.

Who: Ages 8 and up

When: Tuesday afternoons from 1 – 3pm starting Sept. 5 and ending Oct 17.  There will be no class on Sept. 26th.  Please be on time!

Where: Marshall Pond Property parking area on Mica Mine Rd. in Unity, NH. 

How to be prepared: Make sure to be prepared for the weather (rain jackets, boots, bug spray, sunscreen, hat, etc).  It is a good idea to wear pants, closed-toe shoes (sneakers are fine) and bring a long sleeved shirt and plenty of water.  Also, please bring a blank journal (a composition book is fine) in a Ziploc bag with a pencil and your sense of wonder.  All other supplies will be provided.

Wilderness Navigation Series

This 4 week series will help you learn how to use a map and compass to find your way from point A to point B.  You will also learn some basic wilderness skills, including what to do if you get lost in the woods (though you won’t get lost with us).  We will we practice these orienteering and wilderness skills while exploring the Marshall Pond and Unity Mountain properties.

Dawn Dextraze, Sullivan County Natural Resources Education and Outreach Specialist, will be co-teaching this series with Samuel Sprague, Sullivan County Natural Resources Field Technician, who has over 20 years of experience navigating the wilderness and has been on many search and rescue teams.

Vision Boards

Creating a vision board is one of the most powerful ways to manifest the life and emotions you want to create in your world. When you take the time to internally visualize what you want to manifest and then create an external representation of that which you will manifest it provides you with an excellent tool to support manifestation. Clarifying goals and dreams and supplying an energy that creates momentum towards the future you will have. 
Join me in an afternoon of visualizing and creating a vision board to hang in your home. I will share the vision board I made 7 years ago that still hangs on my wall and which has helped every single image I chose to be a reality in my current life.
