Nature Connection Programs for Adults

WATERSHED HEROES

A nature based program for teens and adults with disabilities.

  • Our Watershed Heroes learn about local environments with the support of experienced instructors – the land, river, and marshes are important parts of their community, and we give them the opportunity to know and love the unique nature of their Chesapeake Watershed home!
  • It’s reported that Watershed Heroes are calmer and more engaged after sessions – great for everybody!
  • Spending time outside every day provides proven health benefits for all – Heroes, families and caregivers!
  • Connecting people, especially those with disabilities,
    to nature brings smiles to their faces – Our Heroes have a sparkle in their eye!

We invite you to be part of Watershed Heroes at Greenwell!  

Call 301-373-9775 for more information.

Dress to be outside!

 

GATEWAY TO INDEPENDENCE

Greenwell Foundation has partnered with St. Mary’s County Commissioners and St. Mary’s County Public Schools in supporting transiting youth with disabilities. Through a county grant, participants take weekly trips to the Rosedale Wellness Center at Greenwell and train for productivity after graduation.
