February 21st – Vilda Foundation
This Tuesday we’ll be supporting the Vilda Foundation. The Vilda Foundation is dedicated to rebuilding awareness that creates a deep, meaningful connection to the natural world. They believe the way to do that is by actually spending time outdoors, with hands in the dirt and feet on the ground, planting trees, clearing brush, finding frogs in a creek, making a meal out of wild plants, learning how to turn a piece of wood into an instrument or creating natural dyes with berries.
The Vilda Foundation provides hands-on, place-based nature education to children, adults and educators, creates initiatives that enhance the health and accessibility of our public lands, engages in healthy community building, sustainability, and regenerative living, and serves as a connection point and resource for local nature educators. You can view Vilda’s current program offerings and read more at www.vildanature.org.

DayCaring Preschool is Fairfax’s family-oriented, child-centered non-profit preschool. Our Mission is to grow happy, capable learners in a play-based atmosphere of freedom, passion, art and curiosity. Find out more at their website at www.daycaring.com.
