Thanks so much for asking! We had a lovely turn out. Beautiful camp hidden in the middle of Conchord, NH. Amazing town. Can't wait to go back.

During our presentation, we shared all of the great tools available to parents today, such as your book and others. After the main presentation, we hosted two break out sessions. There we took the two groups out on a nature walk and shared some ideas from your book and a few others. The participants seemed to have a great time.

We will be using some of your ideas for our upcoming events. I'll write up a book talk for your book on our website www.kidsadventuring.org in the coming weeks. Can I use an image of the cover?

Thanks so much for the note. We have really been enjoying your book. I like the set up and the information. We get to repay the favor later this week, where we will be presenting and then talking about Richard Louv and the Children and Nature Network.
