Nature Adventure Activities:
In honor of the healing energy of the Earth’s rivers and waterways, we will be crafting a very special cleansing spray called River Bend. Our ambassador Celina, will guide you in making this powerful cleansing mist. If you’ve feeling stagnant, uninspired or unmotivated, this mist is for you! Together, we will collect the flowing wild river water, strain it and add essential oils that embody the energy of what you want your signature spray to hold. Feel the power of the flowing river energy, as it inspires you to get back into the natural flow of your life!
Explore your creativity, and connection with the earth through crafting your own, one of a kind Wild Earth Jar! We will walk you through how to make this on your own, through wildcrafting and ethical foraging practices. We will be connecting with the earth through listening to our intuitive voice and picking materials that speak to us to craft these special jars. We will utilize what Mother Nature has to offer, by collecting everything from soil, sand, moss, pinecones, leaves, flowers, and whatever else calls you to create with.
Fly Fishing - Basic Lessons
We will let you borrow our gear but please note, you MUST have a Colorado Fishing License to participate. They have day purchase options, so you're welcome to purchase a license for just one day online if you prefer that (Colorado Fish & Wildlife). We will go over basic skills like blueprint of a rod/line, tying flies on, how to choose varying tippet lengths, as well as casting and river reading. We will NOT provide waders, please bring water shoes that are strapped onto your feet, Tevas, Chacos, etc. no flip flops as well as clothing you do not mind getting wet! Summer is the perfect time for wet wading, so we will cool off in the river and see what we find!
