As we are all adjusting to new guidelines surrounding social distancing and staying at home, now is a great chance to explore your home on a GIANT scale. Now, more than ever, it is important to recognize that our “home” is more than just the house we live in. We live in communities full of exciting nature and things to explore. There’s no better place to take your socially distanced adventures than to the great outdoors.
Although Bernheim is temporarily closed there are still many ways you can get outside and explore and connect with nature. While we are closed, Bernheim will be offering Giant-inspired activities for individuals or families to utilize on their own outdoor, socially-distanced, and hand-sanitized explorations.
Each Forest Giant at Bernheim represents a different approach to connecting with nature. Little Elina, our resident Artist Giant, will be offering ideas for activities involving ART. Little Nis, with all his Young Giant energy, will be your guide for ADVENTURE activities. Finally, Mama LouMari, from her space of rest and contemplation will be your activity guide for AWARENESS.
So head on outside and explore on your own, or with the guidance provided from our Forest Giants. ART, ADVENTURE, and AWARENESS awaits!
- Also, don’t forget to post pictures of your adventures (#GiantAdventure)! You can never share too much nature!
