I have two favvourite parts. First, I appreciated the way Lisa created a very interesting online lesson about biomimicry. Second, I liked the fact that she used a neighbourhood example to give our students a collaborative challenge.

Lisa was amazingly knowledgeable and really inspired us to think outside the box and take a closer look at things in nature. My kids loved it and we will do another tour for sure.

Lisa led an enjoyable nature walk through the trails of southern Ontario. Not only were there spectacular views along the walk but she also educates and provides you with activities to enhance your connection with nature and those around you. The hike was a relaxing and adventurous experience. Lisa teaches that through the connection with nature we can be our happiest and most authentic selves which is a key component to achieving our life dreams. Highly recommend!

Lise did an amazing job leading my team from work on a guided tour focusing on nature and mindfulness. She was well prepared for social distancing and sanitizing. We spent two hours walking through the York regional forest. It’s the first time the group of us have been together since the first week of March in person. She dId a great job helping us all reconnect again. Thanks Lisa!

Lisa Gervais articulately offers a range of experiences and information in different natural settings which show how insects, plants, birds and other fellow Earthlings have much to teach us humans about effective and responsive design. The natural settings of Toronto's Don Valley and the Brickworks are inspiring locations for Lisa's invitations to consider relationships within the natural world as examples of innovation in response to challenges we face. A worthwhile and important experience.

The walk is an enjoyable and needed get away from Canada’s busiest city. The calming effect of nature along the Humber includes engaging discussion of positive Psychology as well as indigenous history and traditions that emphasize their oneness with nature.

Lisa led an enjoyable and informative 2.5-hour Sunday afternoon walk through a beautiful and wooded part of Toronto - the woods near the Evergreen Brick Works. She emphasized various ways in which people can better learn to create and innovate by looking to how nature works. I'm glad that I took part in the walk.

What a find! The best tour and tour guide took me through a hidden and rejuvenated gem of a watershed. She deftly combined history, ecology, art and local indigenous wisdom in an compelling format. Don’t miss this opportunity to spend time with Lisa. Turns out she too is quite a gem!
