This three class course will teach you how to immerse yourself in the beauty and calm of nature. We’ll explore the abundance we find as we walk the Beaver Brook trails and take time to stop, relax and enjoy. Learn not only information about flowers and plants but also develop a toolkit to be able to more deeply observe what is around you. We’ll end with a cup of tea we’ve foraged from plants. Take home a journal from the walk.  Instructors Rivka Schwartz & Lindsey Shaklee. Register at www.beaverbrook.org
