In this module, Adventurers will have the opportunity to learn about how ancient peoples from around the world lived and interacted with nature through Tree of Life stories that transcend many cultures around the world! Fun activities, such as starting your own seedlings, making natural inks to paint with, and learning about the properties of various native plants in the Prairies will get Adventurers thinking about the land that we live on and how to be a good lifelong steward of the Earth!
