Ms. Emily May
Sacred Sprout is an organization that aims to foster youth connection to nature. We hope to achieve this through movement, scientific inquiry, and guided field exploration. Their guide, Emily May, has earned a B.S. in Science Education, focused in Earth Science and Biology, and a minor in Sustainability Studies. She is also currently graduating with a Masters in Education and teaching credential from UC Santa Cruz. She has been working with children for over 12 years and is passionate about inspiring healthy relationships with our dynamic and ever changing Earth. This interactive workshop will offer students of all ages opportunities to show their appreciation for Mother Earth. Students will explore a variety of natural science activities such as planting seeds. The workshop will end with an optional local ecology hike. Students will receive a science notebook and sustainable drawing materials to help facilitating the discovery of our sacred connection to Earth. Adult companionship is required for children 5 years old and younger. Permission slip required and must be submitted by adult for youth to participate in an ecology hike independently. If your child does plan on participating in the hike please be sure they’re hydrated, have proper skin protection, and have sturdy footwear for the hike up to the Stargazer Campsite and back. A detailed agenda with exact timeframes will be distributed to adults at the beginning of our workshop. We look forward to connecting with everyone and sharing this grounding experience with you and your Sacred Sprout.
