Nature Connection for Budding Naturalists


Well hello there! 

My name is Emily, but I prefer the name given to me by the children with whom I explore: Nature Emily. I am a nature-based early childhood educator with a passion for connecting children and their families to nature. Looking under logs, singing in the woods, acting wild, and taking long nature walks are some of my favorite things. My greatest passion, however, is helping you, your family, and your community connect deeply with nature. 

I am also a

naturalist - educator - advocate - homesteader - supporter of play - avid gardener - nature mentor - amateur taxidermist - owl enthusiast - wife - curiosity follower - cat mom

Let's Get Outside Together!

Right now is the time to foster your child's deep appreciation for nature. The value of outdoor and nature based education is evident and more schools, organizations, and families are opening their eyes to the power of nature connection. Let me help your child and your family connect and learn in, with, and about nature. 

Build connection, community, and self with Among the Ferns.
