Storytelling Naturalist Programs

Storytelling

Coral tells stories in the ancient art of oral storytelling.  Her stories are told with her voice and her body.  Oral storytelling creates a connection between the audience and the teller. No story is told the same twice because the audience is a living, breathing part of the story. Coral has storytelling programs for children as young as 2, teens, adults, and elders.  Family programs and inter-generational programs are especially wonderful.

Please contact me for more information.

Hands-on Nature Activities

Coral's hands-on nature activities engage audiences of all ages. They build connections with the natural community. Activities include Tracking Exploration, Live Pond Critters, Vermicompost (Worms!) Discovery, Make and Take Bird Feeders, Nature Wands, Constellation Creation and more. They can be done in conjunction with storytelling or a hike or they can stand alone.  Some work well as open house or tabling activities, others need a consistent group.

Please contact me for more information.

Discovery Hikes

There is nature connection to be found in even the most urban environments.  Leading hikes though deep wilderness is lovely, but not necessary. Coral finds interesting pockets of nature in grassy fields, weeds along the edge of an urban pond, and small clusters of trees. A hike can be done in conjunction with storytelling or hands-on nature activities or it can stand alone.

Nature Stories and Wild Crafting or  Hands-on Exploration

Of course storytelling is for adults! We read books, listen to music, and watch movies - it's all story. But sometimes we forget that oral storytelling is just as captivating for adults as it is for young children. So here are a few programs tailored specifically for adults and teens.
