with SunShine Gardner


Thursday, February 4, 2021
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Tuition: $20

Calling all curious kiddos! Do you want to learn more about Ely’s backyard? This class is full of fascinating fun facts and is guaranteed to be a good time! Winter forest studies focuses on exploring the winter woods. Looking for animal tracks, identifying trees, starting a fire, and sliding down hills are some of the activities this class will include. 

Recommended for kids between 7 and 11 years of age.

About the Instructor: My name is Benjamin Gardner, but most people call me SunShine. I have spent the past four years working for Karen Pick at Widjiwagan playing outside with kids of all ages. Sliding down snowy hills and stomping up frozen creeks are all part of a great day in my book, and my classes reflect that. Besides teaching, I love Nordic skiing and other endurance sports so much that I have run the portage marathon for the past two years.
