Compiled from our daily nature journal entries throughout each month to document the learning

By Erin Kenny ©2015

The weather this month has been warm enough for many of the kids to strip off most of their layers including their footwear. It was only towards the end of the month that we began to notice signs of autumn. When we asked the kids how they knew the season had changed, they responded…

Children and Nature contributed to my Healing

I apologize that I have been so delinquent on my Blog posts. I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer last May and, after surgery, underwent 6 months of chemotherapy. I am finally finished with the chemo and it was grueling but the prognosis looks really good.

Step by Step with Autism

I signed up my Boy Scout son for the hiking merit badge. It’s one of the merit badges required for Eagle rank. Because of my son’s autism, I don’t know if he’ll ever be able to complete all the Eagle requirements, but this checks off one that I was confident he could complete.

Hiking is actually an option –…

URGENT: Voices Needed to Save Olympic National Park from warfare training.

Dear C&NN enthusiasts,

URGENT ALERT!

The US Navy wants to turn Washington State's Olympic Peninsula, home to Olympic National Park, into a training range for "Electronic Warfare". They plan to use the skies over Olympic National Park for  squadrons of fighter jets to practice "warfare maneuvers" 8-16 hours a day, permanently.The only thing that will turn this around is a national public outcry. We have only a couple of weeks before the Forest Service makes…

One Last Hike

Rain slickers, rubber boots, happy voices, bright shiny green everywhere, and rain—summer rain, these are the lasting images of my final hike with the Explorer's class of 2015.

It was a fitting end to our time with this adventurous group of children. They were always ready to hit the trails and make discoveries. Some days we would only make it to the front of the…
