Scout Island Nature Centre will be abuzz with young writers during the school fall break in November.
“We’re bringing back our popular nature writing for kids during their fall break,” says Jenny Noble.
“Over the past three years, our young nature scribes have produced some delightful, imaginative poems and stories. We can’t wait to read what will flow from their brains to their papers this time.”
Nature’s Scribes, a nature writing adventure for kids ages eight to 13 will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Scout Island Nature Centre November 12 to 14.
Paula Laita and Noble love to mentor kids in developing their unique voices through outdoor exploration, writing games and playful discoveries.
“Observing and absorbing nature connects us to all that is; writing can help us integrate and share what we experience,” Noble says. “Providing a space and a structure for exploring that process with children is the goal of these workshops.”
The fee is $10 per session or $25 for all three sessions. The group size is limited so Noble says parents should register their children early by calling 250-398-8532.
