For students in 1st – 5th grade.
Coyote Club was developed by John Pazdon and Mary Mazur in 2007 as a way to introduce children to nature-based studies, native crafts and environmental stewardship. It is believed that today’s children are suffering from what some call ‘nature deficit disorder’, and the creation of Coyote Club was driven by a passion to rid children of this deficit by getting them out of the house, into the woods and connected to their environment. Children involved in nature-based education programs often experience a deeper sense of self respect, self esteem and a strengthening of their connection to the natural world. We believe that each child has a gift, which is often revealed through wildlife observation, awareness exercises and primitive skills exploration. It is our hope that we will be able to recognize and nurture that gift, and encourage the child to further develop and honor those unique abilities, strengths and talents we all possess.
The program will meet on Thursdays.
