Observe Some Plants this Week

Plant Observation and Celebration
Find a plant near your home and get to know it. Look deeply at this plant from all angles once every day this week. Throughout the week notice what remains the same and what changes. Can you see the leaves turning color or the flowers changing shape? If you can, start a journal to record the changes you see. What do you notice about this plant that perhaps you have never noticed before?

More information about our “doses of nature”

As we move into summer we will still be offering inspirations for fun and safe ways to get outside. We will be sending 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.

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!
