Just recently, a group of moms, who believe in the benefits of outdoor play, have started a group called Forest School. This is what their facebook page says:
“Every Friday at 3.30 we will get together in a different place each time, come rain or shine (cold weather permitting). We’ll play and explore outside, throw stones, jump in muddy puddles, pet horses, learn to make fires, eat berries etc For parents and toddlers who want to get outside; play, explore and socialize in Fernie.
Disclaimer: This is NOT a real school but a group inspired by the Forest Schools that are becoming popular nowadays.”
If you’re interested in being part of this, you should look them up on facebook and get involved.
