Hi Rick! 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 Natural Teachers Network and our Canada C&N group will probably interest you, among others. Your program sounds fantastic! It seems there is a real call for the re-learning of primitive and basic nature skills. I'm so glad you listed your upcoming workshop and I hope you'll continue to 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. (You are also involved on our Facebook page, right? Wonderful.) Cheers!
