Kids are already curious and fascinated by the natural world. Growing up I was under the impression that I was the best bug catcher in the world. I spent hours out in the backyard collecting potato bugs and other crawlies. I had the opportunities and encouragement to be an avid explorer, and I suppose I just never stopped.Ranger Rick excites that natural explorer within kids. It encourages kids to stay curious,…See More

This year our program is helping a master teacher of geography from a Chinese high school who wants to create a nature center in her school. I am helping her with professionals and educators here in Orange County.  Next year we will do the same for a group - but also include SF and Portland and Costa Rica.  ECCN's focus is deepening dialogue around nature education between east and west.

Hi Dani,

Great work you do!  Do you still live in Portland?  I am designing a sustainability education program for 5 master teachers from China in 2014 and plan to be in Portland Aug 25-27 to work on it. I was just LOOKING to somehow connect them  with C&NN and then wow - a teacher like you would be so cool for them to see and bring back such real re-connections to nature.  

Thanks for wanting to be friends!  Stephanie

I really appreciate your work to get kids outside, Danielle.  And thanks for spreading the word about PLAY AGAIN in DC!

Hey Danielle! Warm welcome to C&NN Connect. I'm glad you found us and hope you make yourself at home in discussions and groups. I suggest starting with our Natural Leaders Network. I hope you saw the piece you did for NWF Wildlife Promise on our news page: www.childrenandnature.org. It just went on Facebook today. Thanks for writing it! I hope you'll share more blogs, ideas and photos with us and find this a rich source of resources. See you soon! Cheers.
