True Nature: Nature Exploration and Mentoring for children (age 3 - 12) and their grown-up.
All classes are 3 hours long. This program was designed for one adult in the child’s life (parent/relative/nanny/friend) to participate and be the at-home mentor. See description for what's expected of at-home mentors. We also designed this program to be a multi-season experience. Families are encouraged to register for fall, winter, and spring sessions.

All classes will be held at Mt. Tabor Park in SE Portland. Meeting location is the picnic shelter.
Classes are limited to 12 children. We require at least three children to run a class.
Potlucks will be held at the conclusion of each session on a Saturday from 10am to 1pm. We will share stories, sing songs, express gratitude, participate in a stewardship project, and share a meal together. Participants from all classes are invited, making this time an opportunity to connect with other families.
