Explore and Discover: Nature-Based Spaces and Activities at your Library

A webinar on library programming that encourages children to explore, discover and connect with nature.

This event has passed.

When children have regular contact with nature, they learn and grow better. Children who play, build, climb, grow, splash and read are developing their observation, visual-spatial, social, and literacy skills. Nature Explorium, a nature-based program at Middle Country Public Library (NY), encourages children to explore, discover and connect with nature. Learn about best practices and resources that you can use at your library to create outdoor spaces, along with indoor and outdoor nature activities. It's a unique way to connect literacy, learning and appreciation for nature as a regular part of the library visit.

Presented by: Tracy LaStella, Coordinator for Youth Services, Middle Country Public Library, NY, and 2015 Library Journal Mover & Shaker.
