The Tipping Point for The New Nature Movement

In his national best selling book “The Tipping Point” author Malcolm Gladwell discusses a few reasons that some products and ideas become huge success stories and others do not. Mr. Gladwell argues that at some point in time "an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire."  Successful products or ideas that spread over a wide demographic do so not because of the direct actions of their creators but because they happened to catch the attention of…

Hi Nkrumah!

I see that Suz already gave you links for the Family Nature Club Tool Kit, as well as the link to register your new family nature club. In the Took Kit, you'll find a page you can use and/or edit to fit your needs regarding liability issues. I modified it a little and typed it out on the top of our sign-in sheets. I know that other FNCs have done the same. This might be an interesting conversation to start here in the NFN forum. I'm curious how others are tackling this subject as well. No one that I know of has ever had to put anything to the "test", as there have been no problems that I know of.

Let me know if you need help starting a discussion, or if there's anything else I can do!

All the best,

Janice

Hey there Nkrumah. How are you? I left you a message about this on Facebook, too.


You can download a Family Nature Club tool kit and other info here:

To register your family nature club, go here:

And, lastly, please do get involved in our Natural Families Network here on the forum. You'll find lots of other club leaders also starting out, as well as experienced nature club leaders like Janice.  It's a great place to share and get info. Hope to see you there. Cheers.

Hi Nkrumah! Belated welcome to the forum from me. I'm so glad Rue tapped you to be on the Outdoor Afro Regional Leadership Team and that you're making yourself at home here. I'm sure I'll see you soon. Cheers.

Hi Nkrumah!

My name is Janice Swaisgood and I am the National Coordinator for Nature Clubs for Families here at C&NN. I just wanted to welcome you to the Natural Families Network Forum, and encourage you to jump into any discussions you find interesting. Likewise, feel free to start a new discussion of your own!
