Linden Nature Connection Skills
Linden Nature Connection Skills has a mission to get kids outside. Said like “Links”, call us LNCS for short, because we aim to do just that- link kiddos to an immersive nature experience, guide them as they build their own meaningful links, and help them cultivate skills that keep those links lasting into adulthood. With free-play, guided skills instruction, and environmental knowledge, LNCS aims to support each child’s wild nature, social development, and the evolution of their Ecological Self. A child fully embodied, supported by caring adults, and connected to the landscape and everyone--including plants and animals!--in it, is healthier, happier, and poised to thrive, not to mention grow up protecting their beloved environments and ecological kin. At LNCS, we help tend those links so they can grow strong.
One way to grow strong? Build resiliency, and build it in all kinds of weather. LNCS is a year-round and all-weather program to encourage resilience, support wellness, and foster ecological and social relationships for children 4-8 years old. Because we believe that dedicated time in nature is a foundation for all our nature-connection skills, classes are 4.5 hours long and offered in four week course commitments with 1-2 classes per week. The more sessions attended, the deeper the impact and more meaningful experience your child has. Classes are from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and held in the lovingly-tended woods at Distant Hill Gardens in Alstead, New Hampshire.
