Nature's Healing Powers with Nancy A. Minich, HTR, RLA
A fascinating workshop to learn about the connection of humankind to nature.  There has always been a strong connection between people and plants, between people and gardening, and people and their natural surroundings.  Biophilia is the innate connection between humans and other living organisms.  This interaction with nature is critically important as humans evolved with plants and animals and therefore have a strong affinity.

Nancy Minich is a registered horticultural therapist and landscape architect.  She has been able to bridge the two professions and elevate the importance of the natural environment to the mental, physical and social health of people of all ages and abilities.  After the presentation, Melissa Miles
an environmental biologist, permaculture designer and teacher will lead a therapeutic holistic hands-on project.

Cerulean Warblers will be the topic at the next Sunday Speaker Series at Bucks County Audubon Society on 10/12

Cerulean Warblers are one of the neotropical migrant species in severe decline due to loss of habitat throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia and in their wintering grounds of the Andes Mountains.  Please support Bucks County Audubon Society in its mission to educate the people of the greater Bucks County region about bird and habitat protection for wild birds such as the Cerulean Warbler.
