Hi Patty! Welcome to the forum. Your project sounds really interesting and you've come to the right place. I suggest you check in with our International Group for resources and discussion. Our C&NN web site - www.childrenandnature.org - has run a couple of news stories about the nature education movement in the US and abroad. You can search the news section to get ideas. I'll try to remember where I've seen nature preschools discussed here to help you out.
