Get Out by "The Blues Rangers"

Hello everyone!  I would like to pass along a program that I am launching that may be of interest to you.  Please check out The 7th Generation School at www.7thgenerationschool.com.

I spent many years as a teacher working with at-risk youth as well as those diagnosed with emotional and behavioral disorders.  I have also recently been a wilderness guide/substance abuse counselor for a wilderness treatment center for young adults.  For many years I have been formulating this program out of my constant question, "What can I do?"  This program is my answer and humble offering to the planet. 

The 7th Generation School is a supplementary program (to a regular or homeschool curriculum) that not only connects youth with the natural world around them but also with the natural world that exists within them.  It is a therapeutic wilderness program (and more) for youth who need something more than what the schools offer.  Our intention is to provide a holistic and eco-centered supplement to our youth so that they may become their vision and purpose in the world.

I hope we get to connect soon!

I'm planning a Kiddie Fun Run and Nature Scavenger Hunt for my daughter and a bunch of kids in our area.  Looking forward to my first Let's G.O.! event. I found the perfect location, a beautiful nature preserve with trails. Can't wait!

Would you like to promote your Let's G.O.! event using social media? I've attached a document that might help. Let me know if you have further questions or challenges, and we'll try to work them out here.

Congratulations to Marilyn Wyzga, the New Hampshire Children in Nature Coalition, and all the NH organizations that came together to host a variety of Let's G.O.! events. You can read about some of them here. Hopefully we'll be able to find out how they all went:
