Nature is always lovely, invincible, glad, whatever is done and suffered by her creatures. All scars she heals, whether in rocks or water or sky or hearts. – John Muir
In the past, Nature Pal Exchange has had the pleasure of hosting over 6 nature exchanges organized only for individual families. We love that so many in our community have requested to incorporate the exchange in their classrooms or with their nature group. Well, the four of us are so excited to announce that this exchange is tailored especially towards those!
If you are familiar with our exchanges this one will basically run in a similar fashion. Signups will be open September 19-23rd. The fee to participate is $25. This fee will go directly to NPE. You may choose to split the costs with your group but we ask that the group signs up as a whole. DO NOT have each individual in the group signup. Once signups close we will begin pairing your nature group/class. We will do our best to pair up groups from different time zones but with this particular exchange it is not a guarantee. Nature Pal Exchange is only open to groups/classes located in the United States & Canada.
We not only encourage adventure and discovery but creativity as well. Friends, you may take all creative freedom on how you would like to prepare your nature package. You may wish to collect items as a group, or if you are signing up your classroom you may request that each student bring in an item or two that they collected with their family. The beauty of NPE is that there is so many educational “rabbit trails” you can take it down. Be inventive and have fun!
Please visit our About page for information on how to safely and responsibly prepare your nature package. NPE takes pride in educating our participants in the safe handling and mailing of nature items. All packages will need to mailed by October 24th.
