What is there to discover about the more than human world around you? What does your body already know? Learn about the multi sensory super powers that you already poses and how to tune them in. This all ages nature awareness games session will open your awareness to deepen your ability for nature connection … and it’s guaranteed to be fun!

Mel Turnbull grew up on Boon Wurrung and Wurrundjeri country, in a place otherwise known as Melbourne. Growing up with plenty of siblings and regularly camping and exploring the outdoors with other families, Mel feels comfortable among a tribe. Mel has been working with kids for over 20 years and mentoring people in nature connection since 2010. Mel runs Firekeepers, a not-for-profit organisation delivering nature connection programs and camps in and around Melbourne. Through their nature clubs, workshops and camps, Firekeepers works to deepen connection with Earth, Ancestors, Ourselves, Community and the More-than-human, offering these strings of connection forward to future generations.
