Hi Todd! Welcome to the forum. I'm really glad you found us and started a Nature Club! I think you did it the best way - by jumping in and being the energy behind it, and then by publicizing it. It's already on our movement map over on the C&NN web site.
Keep us all posted as to how it's going, what outings you have planned or completed. A lot of people come back and put up pictures here. Let us know how we can be of support. You might want to join the Nature Clubs for Families group to see how other people got their clubs going. I hope you make yourself at home here and that your club is a success. Cheers!
