Passionate Fact Workshops
A story way of giving information.

Storytelling Workshop for Science, History & Environmental Educators,
Park Interpreters & Resource Managers

Facts can lie as dead pieces of information on the listeners’ ears. But, woven into story, they come to life. Henry Thoreau, David Attenborough and other great teachers of natural history practice an art of weaving their nature observations into a garment of meaning and beauty that touches something deep within the human soul. Susan Strauss calls this art “a story way of giving information”.
