A Florida Native Rediscovering Florida

I am one of the rare ones: I was born in Florida and have lived here my entire life. 23 years in Pensacola, 6 years in Tampa, and the last 12 in Jacksonville. In all that time, I'vetaken my home state for granted. Summers swimming at Pensacola Beach,camping at Fort Pickens, fishing in Tampa Bay, enjoying the St. JohnsRiver in Jacksonville. I remember complaining about beach and campingtrips, only wanting to stay inside to read books, watch TV, or playvideo games instead.Fast forward to…See More

Hi Mark! Welcome to C&NN. Glad you found us. It sounds like you're having a lot of fun parenting, teaching, and getting out in nature. Have you checked out our Natural Teachers Network? Or our Family Nature Clubs group? I think you'll enjoy the sharing and resources in those, and around the forum. There are also others interested in geocaching -- it might be worthwhile to start a discussion or group about that.

I recognize you from Twitter, too! I'll have to visit your ning network. Look forward to much more connection.
