We are in the midst of National Pollinator Week. In honor of the life that continues to keep life going, let’s go on a pollinating adventure. There are two ways something gets pollinated: biotic or abiotic. Abiotic uses pollinators like wind and water; biotic uses pollinating vectors like insects, birds and some mammals. Go on a wander for a couple hours and take note of the different ways trees and flowers may be pollinated. Become curious about the strategy our plants use to continue their survival and how they evolved to attract a system that creates life.

As we move into summer we will continue offering inspirations for fun and safe ways to get outside. We will be sharing our “Daily Dip” on Mondays and our “Weekend Wilding” on Fridays.
Daily Dips are a way to take your connection deeper with little time needed from you and your family. It is a small activity to do Monday – Friday to practice healthy habits and notice consistent patterns to build your relationship with the natural world. And don’t worry – even if you only get to it one day a week, it can still improve your mental and physical health.
The Weekend Wilding will be a bigger adventure of exploration and discovery, encouraging you to open your curiosities and bring a smile to your face.
If you’re still hungry for nature connection ideas, we plan to continue updating our resource portal with more crafts, games, stories, recipes and more. If you have ideas for ways to continue filling that portal with helpful resources, let us know!
