What brings me here? Curiosity and appreciation. I'm a "journalist in transition"--but in the meantime, hoping to bring platforms such as this one to the attention of key people at my childrens' charter schools. Thanks for reaching out. You can see more about one of Austin's fabulous charter schools here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5i25_8u91Wo

Hello Suz, Thanks for that warm welcome. I intend to be active in the Natural Teachers Network area. I also maintain the village.8shields.org NING site and would love to connect with you about how to better connect our two online communities. Is that something that you would be interested in talking about?

Hello and thank you for the welcome!  I am a pursuing a graduate degree in Environmental Studies.  My specific area of study is environmental education and environmental literacy.  I'm always on the lookout for sources of information in that particular field and C&NN was suggested to me by an advisor.  I'm excited to take advantage of all the resources this site has to offer!

Hi, and thanks for the welcome.  I first learned about C&NN a couple years ago after finally reading Last Child in the Woods (I say "finally" because had a professor who referenced & recommended it constantly but it took me a while before I had a chance to read it).  I decided to join this network because I'm interested in access to resources and as I finish my degree in Parks & Recreation Management, I will begin to be looking for ways to get involved.  At present, I'm working on a research paper for my Senior Seminar class about outdoor experiential learning's impact on academics.  I still need to further develop a more precise focus, and need a good grasp on what studies are out there on the topic.  Hoping to find some good leads here.  :-)

Hi Suz!  And thanks for the warm welcome.  The UCOA or United Communities of America is a NPO in Detroit working on several initiatives to help reduce crime and increase safety in the City.  One of the initiatives that I am heading, is the youth programs.  I will be working with kids to get them back into nature.  I teach a "geocaching 101" workshop to help kids learn about science, technology, and nature all at once.  We also help clean up the environment with the "Cache In Trash Out (CITO)" events that I hold a couple times a year.  The workshops are free, but class size is very limited due to the amount of resources I have.  If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask!  Thanks!  Nicole

Hi, great to be part of such a neat organization. I'm working on a 5K & 1 Mile Family Fun Run at our school district.  Need to know where to go on the site to let everyone know about it?

Hi Suz, thank you so much for the enthusiastic welcome. I hope that this becomes a good opportunity for community building. I would like to link the Natural Teachers Network up with the Social Justice Gardens. Putting community gardens on school grounds makes so much sense for building community, teaching each other about food and earth systems.

Thanks for the welcome and the info Suz! I am really excited to get involved!

Thank you for the warm welcome.  I look forward to being very active in the group, while we all learn and share great things!

Nice to meet you too! I am active and ready to share and make connections. Spring is near and I hear a blue bird singing in my back field. Got to go...outside. Thanks.

Thanks Susan! I am eager to share information about our beta project www.IntoOutside.org. We are working with multiple NGOs to get youth into the outdoors. I am excited to join your site, and see where synergy lives! We are looking to include more youth stories and extend to organizations doing similar work nationally. Still working in the Sierra's as we begin stretching our wings, so perhaps we can talk in the next few? Meanwhile, thanks for reaching out!

Thank you for the lovely welcome and suggestions!  I already joined 3 groups, including those you recommended.  I am the Founding Director of Gaia Psychology where we teach online courses to adults all over the world how to reconnect with Nature and train them as Gaia Facilitators.  I look forward to connecting with many Nature-minded members here.  Peace with Nature-Grace

Thank you for the warm welcome and kind words! We are glad to be part of this network and look forward to connecting and sharing with everyone!

Have a great day!

Thanks so much!  I  am hoping to find lots of useful information here and that this network will assist me in my new ventures.  I have been reading some books about gardens and healthy food lately and right now I am loving Community Garden by the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.  It makes me wish I had a green thumb already but it is inspiring me to not quit and keep focused on my goals!  I would recommend it for anyone who wants to find out really useful and good information about why community gardens are so necessary, useful, and productive.  I guess thirty-one is not too old to begin a new hobby/career?  I hope I can one day post a picture on here of a community garden I have been a part of creating!!

Thank you so much for your welcome!  I have the family nature network group (I think), and have spent a bit of time looking around the website.  It's a little overwhelming, but hopefully I'll get the hang of it!
