Notice the Lunar Cycle

Moon Waning
Our moon is connected with the earth in so many ways – the moon creates our tides in the ocean, birds use the moon for migration and navigation, etc. This week, try and notice how the world is affected by the moon as it moves from full, to waning gibbous, to third quarter. Each night (a little after sunset) go outside and gaze at the moon for a few moments. Notice how the timing of the moonrise changes and how each night you can see a little less of the moon.

More about the newsletter:
This summer we will continue offering inspirations for fun and safe ways to get outside. We will be sharing our “Daily Dip” on Mondays and our “Weekend Wilding” on Fridays. 

Daily Dips are a way to take your connection deeper with little time needed from you and your family. It is a small activity to do Monday – Friday to practice healthy habits and notice consistent patterns to build your relationship with the natural world. And don’t worry – even if you only get to it one day a week, it can still improve your mental and physical health.

The Weekend Wilding will be a bigger adventure of exploration and discovery, encouraging you to open your curiosities and bring a smile to your face.

Other resources:
If you’re still hungry for nature connection ideas, we plan to continue updating our resource portal with more crafts, games, stories, recipes and more. If you have ideas for ways to continue filling that portal with helpful resources, let us know!
