Hello!

Hello All!Hi there, my name is Mark.  I live in Toronto and I am in the very preliminary stages of planning a new C&NN program in my area.  I would love to hear from anyone out there who has experience with starting up a program from the ground up.  I am currently reviewing the start-up materials provided by C&NN, and they are very helpful (and overwhelming!).  If there are any seasoned program pros out there who are willing to share their experiences & maybe some advice, I'm all…See More

Hi Mark! Warm welcome to C&NN Connect. I'm the forum host. I'm glad you found us and hope you make yourself at home in discussions and groups. Our Canada Children and Nature group and, especially, our Natural Families Network will probably interest you, among others. The NTN is a great place to ask questions and talk about starting a nature club from the ground up. I hope you'll share your activities, ideas and photos with us and find this a rich source of resources. For any questions about the network, see our FAQ page. Hope to see you here again soon.
