Looking Closely: Writing Walks for Young People
(Ages 8 to 12) with Julia Sforza
Part of the Nature Walk Series at Opus 40. Spend time exploring nature on our beautiful walking trails.
August 15, 2021
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Join us for a guided walk through the land discussing basic natural identification, appreciating and looking closely at the native flora, learning about invasive plants. There will be a short time to be quiet and write down observations of our natural surroundings, followed by sharing our works aloud to the group. At the end of the walk there will be a small gathering, where we will share thoughts and ideas about how to better appreciate and steward the land over herbal tea and homemade cookies. This walk is for young people who are interested in nature and writing, but it is also offered to cultivate an appreciation of nature and the mindfulness it can offer. Adults must accompany or stay hearby.
