About

The Nature Link LLC

Explore, Learn, Create, Connect

The Nature Link LLC was founded by Dina Baker with the goal of bringing kids, adults and families together to form a nature and art-loving community. The Nature Link’s Studio and Gallery opened its doors on June 3, 2021!

Vision: To create an inclusive and accessible indoor and outdoor space for all individuals to learn new skills in art, explore and learn about nature, and feel more connected to nature through our various educational programs.

Mission: Creating a welcoming space for artistic expression, nature exploration and community.

The stress that daily life brings to children and adults, especially during times of COVID-19, can really impact our mental, emotional and physical health. Spending time in nature or creating art of any kind can be very therapeutic, calming and has been proven to reduce stress. If you like to do both, then you’re even more ahead of the game! You do not have to be experienced to participate in our art classes, programs, or workshops. We welcome all ages, levels and abilities to participate in our art and nature-based programming. Please check out our programs on the website for more information.
