I am the Vice President of Frosty Pines Wilderness Education Program, a nature connection and environmental education program for children and families in Southwest Colorado. My passion is finding new and creative ways in which to engage children with their natural surroundings in order to create a positive place for them to learn about and explore themselves as unique individuals and free themsleves from the expected. This is achieved in many ways, but mostly by using the outdoors as a classroom where they are free from 4 walls and a grading scale.
