Untamed Reads at the Nature Center @ Nature Center
Dec 27 @ 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM

This year we’re going to have a wild books collective. We’ll gather every final Thursday of the month from 5:30-6:30pm at the fireplace (until it is warm enough to start having outdoor firepits and s’mores).

Readings are for both adults and another set for 3rd-6th grade (pre-teen readers). Then there will be a showcased picture book here in the Nature Center as well for our little friends who come and visit the animals during the day. The books for all ages follow a common theme. So for February the theme is surviving in the wild cold (inspired by the cyclone bomb). For adults this is the fairy-re-telling of Eowyn Ivy’s The Snow Child and Hannah Moderow’s Lilys Mountain. Both of these books are quick-paced reads that weave in survival in the cold to a broader story. They’re perfect to read with a hot chocolate in your hand under a heavy blanket.

March’s theme is Wolves. In Wolfe Nation “Brenda Peterson tells the 300-year history of wild wolves in America. It is also our own history, seen through our relationship with wolves. The earliest Americans revered them. Settlers zealously exterminated them. Now, scientists, writers, and ordinary citizens are fighting to bring them back to the wild. Peterson, an eloquent voice in the battle for twenty years, makes the powerful case that without wolves, not only will our whole ecology unravel, but we’ll lose much of our national soul. (From Amazon.com)” Lauren Wolk’s Wolf Hollow has more to do with bullying than the wild animal of Yellowstone. It was one of the most celebrated chapter books of 2017 for pre-teens.

April’s theme is trees, May is magic unseen (in nature), June is sea life…If you would like a full listing of our books come grab a print-off at the Nature Center or drop me an email at Naturalist@BroadlandsHOA.com.

And I’ll see you the final Thursday of each month at 5:30 with some hot chocolate by the fireplace. This event is open to all members of the community and free of charge.

2019 Potions Class Series @ Nature Center
Jan 12 @ 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Thanks to the crowds that have come to our potion’s events for the last 4 years, we are beginning a monthly potion (herbal preparations) series for the entire year of 2019. This will allow us to focus on specific herbs for specific needs: digestion support, sleep aids, stress reducers, emotional balance, immune-support, two outings gathering and preparing our herbs that grow here in our own backyard, and two fun potions classes where we will make gifts toward the end of the year.

You may purchase this series of classes as a package for $150, which is a $50 savings, or purchase individual classes for $20 each. Purchasers of the Potions Class Series will be given the potions of any classes missed included in their tuition for the year. This is a perfect gift for your little chemist, Harry Potter enthusiast, or anyone wanting to reclaim their health with a little more knowledge of what is available in plant formulas. Gift Certificates are available.  To register, scroll down to select either the series(10 classes) or individual classes.

A Closer Look of What Will Be Concocted Each Month:

  • January 12: If Snape had not been food for Nagini he would be teaching this Potions Lab on Herbs for Digestion
  • February 2nd: If Snape had not been bullied by James Potter he would be brewing Potions for Heart Support with all of us
  • March 2nd: Snape will somehow make an appearance at this month’s potions lab as he is the specialist on keeping calm (even when dancing with the Dark Lord Mr. V proud owner of terrible nostril plastic surgery). Herbs for Anxiety and Stress Reduction
  • April 6th: Even a bachelor like Snape must do spring cleaning. Herbs for the Home for those of you muggles lacking a working wand to zap it squeaky clean
  • May: No Potions Class
  • June 1st: Wild Herb Foraging and Preparations Spring/Summer (for when you get stuck in the forest hunting down the unicorn blood suckers)
  • July: No Potions Class
  • August 3rd: Meals as Medicine and Immunity Boosting aka Potions to sneak into folks who think potions are fun to make but ne’er to enter their mouths. (This month will feature what herbalists call “Adaptogens”)
  • September 7th: Wild Herb Foraging and Preparations Summer/Fall for when you go searching for Grawp with Hagrid
  • October 5th: Our yearly Come in Costume if you Dare! Harry Potter Themed Potions
  • November 2nd: This is a set of potions Snape never mastered…Herbal options for Emotional Lows
  • December 7th: Snape’s bizarre secret passion…making herbal gifts for the holidays
