The Language of Nature/Healing Plants Walk

Our ancestors listened and learned the language of nature. They understood the meaning of signs left by wildlife; the wealth shared by the forest and the steady change of the seasons.  I believe we all carry their memories in our bodies and that time spent exploring and observing nature can help us understand not only to forests and wildlife; but our history as well.

Please Join to Explore the Language of Nature

Have you wondered about the trees and plants you see on a walk through the woods: what lives there, what the history of the land has been and how it is changing even as we come to understand it. Take a walk and learn about the trees, plants and animals that are lifelong residents of a local forest.  We’ll explore their local neighborhoods, learn their stories, improve our powers of observation and enjoy the beauty of the day.

It is possible to observe and learn about the inhabitants of the woods or have a walk designed around a specific topic such as:

  • Plant identification

  • Eastern coyotes and wolves - are they in Maine?

  • Animal and plant adaptations to the seasons

  • Animal and Plant Intelligence

  • Coastal Ecology

  • and more!

Walks are held rain or shine.



Length: 2-3 hours, clear skies to moderate rain.

Locations: Walks can be scheduled at  Sebago Lake Land Reserve in Standish, Clifford Park in Biddeford, Two Lights or Crescent Beach State Parks in Cape Elizabeth, Emmons Preserve in Kennebunkport or Bradbury Mountain State Park in Pownal (near Freeport). Other locations are possible provided permission to lead a walk on the property is granted by the land owner.  This is often possible on state and town parks and lands. Properties that are privately held or owned by nonprofit organizations are also possible on a case by case basis.
