Welcome to Appreciating Earth, Education by Nicole Myers
Education fosters awareness, which generates appreciation. Learn how to observe the Earth through tactile & visual experience. I present Earth Science knowledge to schools, teachers, parents, & perpetual students through through multimedia presentations & lesson plans. I also lead natural science field trips in Northern California.
Beginning in 2020 I will offer field excursions for those who would like to experience nature through the eyes of a geologist. As summer approaches I will send out a newsletter to let you known about the summer field opportunities I am planning. If you have any Sonoma County location requests, fill out the contact form. Let the adventures begin!
