My friend Jeanie and I took my son Stephen and his friend Sam for a hike. At the beginning of the hike, I noticed a plant with a red stem growing on the edge of the trail and stopped to take a picture of it. As I did this, I mentioned to Jeanie that I was collecting pictures of red. Stephen and Sam ran up to see what I was doing. Jeanie said, "She is…Continue

I see constant reminders in the media and around me of the hurts of our land. Today I went on a rainy spring hike to my local nature spot and even there I found stakes in the ground delineating where there will be construction and the trees have already been cut down. I feel sad, I am grieving the loss of something dear.
The destruction of our earth is so very big, the timelines to…

If I were a tree, just for the day,
Would my perspective change on what humans say?
Mankind states nature is wild and free,
But is that what I would discover and what I would see?
I would find root systems that communicate things,
And perhaps observe people as the wild beings.
I’d witness them breathing in what I breathe out,
And know we were connected without any doubt.
I’d notice nature living in complete harmony,

love I love skunk cabbage. It is one of my favorite signs of spring. As a child, I would carefully navigate the edge of brooks and swamps, making sure not to step on skunk cabbage plants. It was fun to be a bit scared of the potential stink, though the fear of the smell was worse than the smell itself.
Each year, as the light changes and the air warms, I…Continue

Cedarsong Forest Kindergarten Newsletter - December 2015
By Erin Kenny ©2015
December in the forest was dark and foggy. We had several of the coldest days so far, with temperatures in the low 30’s (Fahrenheit). Our teachers had to work diligently to make sure the children stayed warm. We also kept open communication with the parents about what clothing was working and what was not. Because children this age (2-5 years old) are so tactile, they kept wanting to take off…Continue
