Grassroots Leaders and Partners from across the United States and Canada gathered in San Diego last month for C&NN's fifth Annual Gathering of Grassroots Leaders, GG2011. Titled “Let's G.O.! Get Outside”, this year's gathering built on the unqualified success of C&NN's youth-led April action campaign and focused on "boots-on-the-ground" strategies to get kids outside and connected to nature. With a record number of participants, this year's attendees numbered nearly 140. The gathering featured one special track, a three-day outdoor leadership training workshop by and for Natural Leaders: the Leadership Legacy Camp. The Natural Leaders Network has extended an invitation to all GG2011 attendees to participate and contribute to this pilot program. Other tracks included Learning Outside, Playing & Serving Outside, and Growing Outside for educators, community partners and health care providers.
