We welcome you to join us with a friend or two, or visit with your group (4-H, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Church and Youth Groups, etc.). You’ll enjoy a one-of-a-kind adventure with Ann Stubbs where she will provide an opportunity for you to connect with nature through crafts and educational outings.
Ann holds a Master’s Degree in Art and Elementary Education from the University of Delaware. She has done commissioned pieces and educational programs for the White House, Campbell’s Soup Company and Longwood Gardens. Her passion is to inspire creativity through nature in children and adults of all ages.
