The owner of Rhea Dawn Natural Landscapes was inspired when she saw the gap between nature and people widening. She realized that there was an intrinsic value to people having contact with native species in a habitat, and children especially need this contact. Today, the research on this topic is prolific and underscores the value of nature and human beings being together. With more than 20 years of experience in this field, the owner has specialized in playground and day care development. Her designs assist educators with their programs, allowing them to teach outside. She has been a Certified Playground Inspector in Canada since 2014, and she designs playgrounds according to the CSA (Canada Standards Associations) and in accordance with the Children Play Spaces and Equipment Z614-14. She uses natural materials to meet these standards for clients.
