Get inspired about nature play, no matter the season! Nature Play Workshop for Families, coauthored by Monica Wiedel-Lubinski and Karen Madigan, sparked this creative new series to encourage hands-on nature play. Each online class features 10 fun ideas - perfect for parents and teachers looking for engaging ways to share nature with children.

We will kick off the winter series with book coauthor and ERAFANS Executive Director Monica Wiedel-Lubinski followed by rotating guests each season. Save the dates for Spring (5/18), Summer (8/17), and Autumn (11/16) sessions!
