Urban Forest School allows nature to teach us and permits children to engage naturally in the space. The principle goals are for children to grow as protectors of nature, take note of what's happening around them and overall nature appreciation. Families interact with their youth, no drop offs. Think about how you can continue to engage your youth at home as you become more comfortable exploring around in your own backyard or neighborhood. Look out for opportunities to revisit these Urban Forest School locations independently with your extended family and friends.
A note about RSVPs: Starting in March 2021 we will be taking note of registrants that hold space on our registration list but fail to show up at our FREE, we ain't got money to waste, high vibrational events that we curate for our community. If found in violation as a no-call, no-show, you may forfeit your family's chance to participate in future events by a 3 month probationary period or longer. It's just plain ol' unfair to those eager to attend but get placed on the waitlist---which happens for EVERY one of our Black To The Land Coalition events. We dope, so...folx want to come learn and vibe out. But please, as things come up and life happens, be community-minded and think about others that could benefit by reaching out to us via email to cancel your spot: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Ms. Djenaba Ali at 248-820-0782. Thanking you in advance
