The Wisdom Tree

SUUSI Nature is rekindling an oldie but goodie! This is Nature for everyone

– without any physical effort! Come sit, eat lunch, enjoy the afternoon breeze, and learn about what surrounds us. You’ll hear about how the mountains and rivers around us formed millions of years ago and the history of the humans who weaved their lives and culture into this region. Learn about plants in a way you’ve never heard before!
