Hey everyone - Thought you'd want to read some recaps from Outdoor Nation.

Ever consider creating a listserv to email out events like the outdoor nation? or is there a listserv that I'm just not on that would have told me about it?  I would have loved to have gone.

Hi Heather, Juliet and others. (Heather, welcome to the forum!) We are working on a C&NN directory that will be comprehensive and will make it easier to connect with others in your geographic region or area of interest. In the meantime, Heather, were you able to search by state, as Amy suggested? Also, visit and check out the Movement Map for campaigns and initiatives. On that site, you can also download the Natural Leaders Tool Kit. In addition to the people Amy mentioned as resources, you might also want to contact Avery Cleary (a member here). She may be able to put you in touch with some regional Grassroots leaders. Let us know how your efforts go!

Oh that's clever! Why didn't I figure this out? I've always been doing a manual page-by-page sift job. Dow!

Heather, and others, one easy way to find local leaders is to go to the members section and type in your two letter State code. For you it would be "CA." There are two big efforts in California -- San Diego and the Bay Area. Leaders are Anne Fege or Mary Roscoe respectively. They are also both here on C&NN Connect. Again -- go to the members section and type in their name to find them.

HOw do I find local leaders in my area on this site? I'd like to have a local network. Thanks!!!

Hi Leaders-

An invitation for any local natural leaders to join me in organizing and carrying out my 7th Annual Earth Day Celebration on Stinson Beach (Marin County, CA). Just posted it as a Let's G.O. event. See for details. Contact me via the address at that website.
