Hi Suz, I'm looking forward to sharing ideas with everyone and contributing to the network. That May Day image is fantastic, it's obviously time to bring floral wreaths back into circulation. I thought a national flower festival in the UK would be lovely - probably May Day is the right day for it too. My father is 95 and he used to dance around the May Pole about 90 years ago .......dressed in a smock and getting tangled up in ribbons.

Thanks Suz. The teachers newtwork sounds great and I shall definately try to get involved with this.
Not sure why you did not get my original message and wonder if others also had difficulty. I am keen to find out what research and evidence gathering everyone is doing to prove the efficacybeing in the natural world with children. We for example are using standardized sdq andf EL qus with children, parents and teachers pre and post.
My visions is that indoor schools will embrace outr agenda so fully that all children are taught outside as part of everyday curricula. In order to acheive thsi we need to prove ourselves.
Would you be willing to post this on to others to debate?
Graet to meet like minded souls!

thank you for the welcome. I am glad to be a part of this network. Just heard Bill McKibbon speak at Middlebury Reunion. Powerful time to be alive and a lot of work to do.

Thanks so much Suz! We have a glorious sunny day and already I've heard from parents that their kids woke up saying "It's Mud Games Day!" I'll report back to you all with photos sometime over the weekend :o)

Hey, thanks for the welcome! This is such a great resource and a community of people clearly passionate about getting kids in the outdoors. Always happy to contribute and hopefully mine the experience of the committed people on this network too. Kindest, Charley May.

Dear Suz

Thanks for your message. Yeah, I will join some more groups and I really hope for some positive reply. As I wrote before we just created a Forum for Cameroon under the theme "children for nature". Kids and teachers in Cameroon are enthusiastic but unfortunately the reply from aproad is low. Here is the link once again: www.wildplanetecoproject.org/wpe-forum/

There are more than 600 photos on our homepage. Simply visit the photogallery. Most photos are related to nature because I like the wildlife photography.

More about our work here soon. I just get organized.

Best wishes from Cameroon

Thanks, Suz. I did join the Charlotte Mason group. My dear friend Naomi just created the group hoping to raise awareness how the educational philosophy of Charlotte Mason aligns so well with the purpose of this network. Glad to have found it.

Thanks for the welcome. I must admit I'm new to this type of learning so bare with me! I am the director of the Boulder Jewish Community Center's preschool. I've been in early childhood education for over 22 years and am always searching for new ideas. Living in the beautiful city of Boulder lends itself naturally to the "outdoor classroom" and while we spend much of our time outside with children, I'm looking at ways to future this experience.

Thanks Suz, I just took a position with the Maryland Park Service as a naturalist in The Soldier's Delight Natural Environmental Area...
I'm looking forward to creating some rockin' new programs for families and students of all ages and glad to have a resource like C&NN

Thanks! I was so excited when I stumbled on this forum. As a special education teacher I am very interested in exploring nature based therapies for children with autism, ADHA and other behavior disorders. I look forward to accessing the resources and chatting with my fellow nature lovers.
