Here’s what people are saying:
“This walk in the woods with Amy is a delightful way to learn about all those colorful blooms we see in the landscape, but seldom stop to explore. I went away with a renewed appreciation for wild things and the miracle of nature Amy seems to know like the back of her hand. I never leaned more in such a short time, nor had more fun doing it. Truly a gift. ” ~ Ardis, South Portland (Private Nature Walk participant)
