Warm & Cozy – Nature Exploration

Need a nature moment? Come on in and experience the tranquility and spirit of nature. Get creative and curious while engaging the senses as we connect to & through nature. Enjoy a warm beverage (provided) while soaking in the restorative strength nature brings.

This is a hands-on program that focuses on the journey, not the destination. Our goal is for you to walk away feeling relaxed and restored – and ready to take on the rest of winter!

Cozy up with hot chocolate and fuzzy fibers! Slow down with us on a late Saturday morning and find some calming magic in a blend of warm milk, creamy chocolate, and decadent sugar. Enjoy your steamy drink over a discussion with samples of many different fibers and textiles that is sure to take you on a mini trip to somewhere warmer. Fun Fact: The cocoa bean and the alpaca come from the same parts of the world!

Immerse yourself in the winter forest with animal tracks, antlers, and the taste of white pine tea! While the fresh scent of pine is a familiar one, drinking white pine tea is more uncommon. Gather with us and share your thoughts on this unusual brew. During this one-hour workshop, you can also expect lively discussion while learning a bit about evergreens and forest animals including their winter habits.
