About Mary: Hi! I’m Mary, your child’s nature guide! I am a Connecticut certified Physical Education and Health teacher with 20 years teaching experience. I earned my certification in Nature Based Education through a wonderful organization called ERAFANS. I have seen how so many kids are tethered to a make believe world through technology. Too much screen time is literally changing how kids' brains develop. A connection to Nature can contribute to healthy mental and physical growth building confidence and strength. Fit by Nature is dedicated to nurturing your child's connection to Nature.

COVID Safety Protocols: Masks are not required for outdoor activities. Children and instructor will be safely distanced. Masks are only required for indoor activities where participants are in close proximity.
