February 2022 Newsletter
This week we have experienced temperatures over 70 degrees. The great outdoors are calling!! The Nature Lodge hopes to become a conduit for those seeking volunteering opportunities looking for the right fit. We wanted to highlight some ways you can get your hands dirty, giving back in a safe-as-possible way, as we emerge from the uncertainty caused by the Omicron variant.

Divine Equine Volunteers

Equine-assisted activities is a range of activities with horses to improve human physical, emotional, and mental health. People can find strength and independence through the healing power of the horse. Equine-assisted therapy gives the ability to control a horse as well as one’s own body which inspires self-confidence, responsibility and encourages teamwork. Volunteers are the lifeblood of Divine Equine. If you love being around cool people and beautiful horses or have always been curious about horses, we offer training for horse leaders, and side walkers. As well as offer opportunities to help feed and muck!
