Connecting With Nature

We strive to be an active part of the community, and stay current to the Columbia Valley’s varied interests, needs, and understanding of environmental issues. Beginning in 2016, our programming has focused on Connecting With Nature.

Wildsight believes that developing deep connections and positive relationships will result in environmental stewardship, and a dedication to caring for the environment. It has been shown that the best way to do so is to spend time outside. Our Connecting With Nature program does that by offering inspirational, educational and experiential activities for residents and visitors, young and old. It is a widely researched fact that there are multiple physical, mental and emotional benefits to being in nature that counteract our society’s current high levels of stress. By being inspired and guided onto local trails and into nature, we will feel more connected to the natural world, and slowly develop an ethic of responsibility and stewardship. 20090923-20090923-img_3083
