Branching Out
A Nature Interpretation Mentorship Program​

Sundays, 2:00 - 4:00 pm

March 28, April 4, April 11, April 18, April 25, May 2, May 9 and May 16

A call for participants interested in creating a meaningful nature experience for your community, in your cultural language.

"Branching Out" is an 8-week nature interpretation mentorship program for people who speak English and another language. In exchange for 16 hours of skill development, you will design and deliver a nature walk for the public in the language linked to your culture. Imagine the thrill of teaching others the name of a bird or plant in your cultural language!

Program Accessibility

We hope the following offerings will make it easier for everyone to participate.

Program Activities

Sessions will include working with an Indigenous Elder to develop a Land Acknowledgement, and learning about Forest Bathing, cherry blossoms, bird migration, watersheds, animal tracks and time to develop your walk.
