Eco Adventure Children's Program
Daily 12:00 AM to Thursday, July 18, 2019 12:30 PM
During our interactive days together, experienced program leaders and trained Eco-guides will lead groups of young learners through the various eco-systems at the Ridge and instill an appreciation of God’s gift of nature.
Do you love nature? Do you love working with kids? Consider serving as an Eco-Guide during Eco-Adventure. Eco-Guides must be 15 years or older, and will work with experienced program leaders in facilitating activities and leading a small group of children to the various stations.

Karen has enjoyed planning Eco Adventure and looks forward to exploring God’s Creation this summer at Rolling Ridge.
As a graduate of Gateways to God, Spiritual Direction Program and Congregational Formation at Rolling Ridge Retreat Center and the Soul of Leadership program, through Excutive Soul and the Shalem Institute, Karen has deepened her understanding of body, mind and spirit, offering this to those seeking a companion on their walk in faith.
Her work at the Giving Garden includes teaching kids and new gardeners about organic, sustainable methods, the importance of soil health, and protecting the diversity of pollinators and beneficial insects. She also designs and installs perennial and native plant gardens both at Rolling Ridge and in the community.
