Attended event at Shepardstown WV several years ago. Since then interested in promoting and designing programs to get children outside experiencing nature. I have been trying to start a beta project for an outdoor classroom here in Rye at my son's school.

Hi Thomas. Welcome to the forum. I'm glad you're here and hope you make yourself at home in discussions and groups. I hope you'll take the opportunity to tell us more about the project at your son's school. You might enjoy our Natural Teachers Network, among others. I'm pleased you're making contacts here and hope we see more of you. (I also echo John's suggestion of connecting with Marilyn Wyzga, who's on this forum.) Cheers!
The Children & Nature Network is quite active in New Hampshire. Marilyn Wyzga, my colleague on the C&NN National Grassroots Leadership Team, is a wildlife educator for the NH Fish and Wildlife Agency and is working on scheduling screenings of Mother Nature's Child in Concord and Keene. You might want to connect with her. She can be reached at Marilyn.Wyzga@wildlife.nh.gov. Very glad that you have joined our group. We have a lot of exciting things going on with health professionals. By the way, I was at Shepherdstown also to hear Rich. Been hooked ever since. Best wishes, John
Thanks for your message, Tom. It's wonderful to see the medical community working toward these goals - I hope that will expand as awareness grows. Come to the screening of Mother Nature's Child in Hanover on the 12th if you have time. Or better yet, sponsor a screening in your own area! Best wishes, Camilla
