- This event has passed.
Join us to learn about the Harris Center’s new early childhood program, Wild Roots Nature School, and meet the director, Liza Lowe. Wild Roots is a nature immersion program for children ages 3 to 6 that will run on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to noon at Elm Farm on Hurricane Road in Keene this fall. We’ll spend our mornings outdoors playing in the forest and fields, learning from seasonal rhythms, and exploring the natural world. Wild Roots Nature School allows children space to wonder, inquire, learn collaboratively, and build community with one another in the natural world.
9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at Elm Farm, 139 Hurricane Road, Keene. This open house will be held outside, so dress for the weather!
About the Wild Roots Director and Lead Teacher: Liza Lowe grew up in Michigan finding herself most at
home in forests, fields, and the Great Lakes. Gardening, farming, landscaping, and a deep love for
nature all led to her ongoing 15+ years of working with children outdoors. From MN to MA to CO to MD
to VT, Liza found her way to NH, where she earned her MEd from Antioch University New England and is
currently Affiliate Faculty in their Nature-based Early Childhood program. As the mother of two very active children, Liza had a vision and passion for starting a nature-based program. In 2013, she founded Wild Roots Nature School. Liza enjoys supporting children in their discoveries of the natural world and offering them opportunities to connect with their place.
