Rhonda Ursulak replied to John Thielbahr's discussion How Many Master Naturalists Are Members of C&NN Connect?
"I agree John, there is no easy answer. I agree also that it will probably start with the generation we are teaching now to get back out into nature. We adults are slow to change and change brings its own fears. One of the ways I do this is through…"

Rhonda -- regarding the master naturalist programs, you might want to contact the Alliance for Natural Resource Outreach and Service Programs (ANROSP -- a truly terrible acronym!): www.nralliance.org. They are an umbrella group for the many master naturalist programs in the U.S. You could consider attending their upcoming annual conference, which will be held in Moline, Illinois, on September 20 - 24. Details are on their website. Good luck -- it's a great program model!

Hi Rhonda

I've just been asked to create an "International C&NN Connect" group so please do stop by and say hello there. Oh yes...and the Scotland group welcomes members from all over the world too.

Thanks for your great discussion post - I hope more folk chip in soon. In the mid-Nineties I worked at an Outdoor Centre near Orangeville.

Best wishes
Juliet
