Team Enviro-photo educators discussion #1 please start orthers!

As a Grandpa, i have always immerse my kids/ grands kids in outdoor exercise-fun, as Let's is promoting now nation-wide. My grandfather/father called it chores?

I have tried thru writings to reach out to other families who do not know what to do for free like Explore Nature outside their door!

I am called the Portland "Oregon Nature Examiner; so I specialize in Oregon family outing here. Yet every state has millions of acres of fun and science to explore.

i adore Burr Williams suggestion about getting kids doing photographs with a purpose.

Can't get any better than that or can we? Think TEAM!

Shirley Hunt just added a blog about Slow Photography that got me thinking: As with so many technological devices, it can be easy to get lost in the device and miss the moment -- or the device can…Continue

New study: Digital cameras are capable of influencing children's "connectedness to nature."

I'm sorry to report that a C&NN Connect member has sent inappropriate messages to members of this group. That member has been suspended.

Hi everyone,

I thought you all might be interested in how our nature center is using explorable panoramas to engage kids in nature and hopefully get them outside.  The panoramas are geolocated and accessible via Google Earth.  As part of one of our programs we let students explore the panoramas before they visit and then ask them to search those same areas for similarities and differences from the panorama.

Hi everyone -- Just came across this and thought I'd share it with you:


Free Nature Photography Teacher Workshops through Univ. of Minnesota.


This sounds wonderful. Please feel free to pass it on to others, and let us know if you know of similar workshops.

and you should have photos of each! nature centers and interpretative centers should make smart phone apps of this basic information! put it on their website! publish little notebooks with this basic information!

What is your bioregion? How many major habitats are found in your bioregion? What are 50 birds, 50 plants, 50 invertebrates, 20 snakes and lizards and amphibians and 20 mammals in your bioregion ---everyone should know this basic information about their home!!!!!!!

What I recommend parents and or teaches do sometime locally if in Oregon

As a grandffather, my kids/grandkids are not obese and are sun bunned outdoors. But it has to be fun and an adventure! Exercise and weight loss is a byproduct fo being outdoors having fun,

Burr Williams, Brilliant! We could do this evolution quickly here!!!!

addendum... have the kids do the photodocumentation... not "bring it home" to the kids to see in the "virtual world"
Comment by Burr Williams on March 18, 2010 at 6:15pm
we document the southern llano estacado and surrounding regions at the Sibley Nature Center...through all the seasons. We have over 150 photoessays on our website of the 8 major habitats. We constantly find range extensions of flora and fauna, for our bioregion has rarely been studied by academia (even the regional universities like Texas Tech!). All volunteers are asked to do a virtual trail at our site, including science, and we have discovered two behaviors of invertebrates previously unrecorded by science. Check out the discussion on bioregional education that I started... we are proposing that students become the photo documenters, and working with state education agencies to incorporate it in the curriculum.
