Nature’s Scribes at Scout Island

The Scout Island Nature Centre and the Williams Lake Field Naturalists will present Nature’s Scribes.

The Scout Island Nature Centre and the Williams Lake Field Naturalists will present Nature’s Scribes Sept. 28 and Nov. 13 and 15 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Nature’s Scribes includes a nature writing adventure for kids ages seven to 13.

Observing and absorbing nature connects us to all that is; writing can help us integrate and share what we experience. Providing a space and a structure for exploring that process is the goal of these workshops.

Anne Theresa White has been mentoring young writers in the community for several years, and her daily walks at the nature centre feed her creative spirit.

She has written a magical children’s book set there. She and staff teacher Julianne Trelenberg will combine nature walks with writing games to nurture kids’ expressive potential.

Group size is limited, so register early by phoning 250-398-8532 or e-mailing neptune@goldcity.net. The fee is $10 per session or $25 for all three.

The event is being held with the support of the Cariboo Regional District and the City of Williams Lake through the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society.
