Good morning Suz & thanks for the warm welcome... and actually, it's Corky, not Gerald. Haven't been Gerald since day two of my life... And yes, Acadia National Park is an incredible National treasure... I did some strategic planning & team building/leadership development with the the park's full-time interpretive staff last year, and even got to take them on a four hour kayak adventure on the ocean... my interest in joining here is that I do strategic planning for schools, do leadership development for teachers, and in my past, was founder and director of Shaver's Creek Environmental Center for Penn State University. I look forward to being part of future discussions. Thanks so much, Corky

Hi Suz! 

Thanks for the welcome! We are excited to be a part of C&NN Connect. Our Kickstarter page has just launched to raise money for our project, Backyard Planet. We'd love any help to spread the word!! See our page and watch our short video here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/backyardplanet/backyard-planet 

Thanks so much! :)

Thanks for the nice note Suz.  I'm interested in the forum for lots of reasons, but mostly to discuss our local movement in Northern Colorado with others here.  The group is called Children and Nature Connection - www.kidsnatureconnection.org

I've also been managing a study funded by Great Outdoors Colorado called Plug in to Nature as well www.larimer.org/plugintonature  We're hoping that this study can be a template for other communities to identify the specific barriers families face in their locale and generate community based solutions.  Here it's generated a lot of excellent ideas for breaking down parents issues with time and access.  

Thanks again - looking forward to connecting.

Thanks for the welcome.  We look forward to joining in some discussions and learning about a whole host of things.  Whilst I build furniture from reclaimed and recycled materials my wife works with children - so I'm sure you'll be hearing from us both...

Hi Suz. Thanks for the welcome note. My interest in joining the forum is in trying to be more connected to nature opportunities for me and the family, particularly in the Pacific Northwest. Our little one loves activity, but we're battling the near constant rain for the next few months.

Hi Suz,

What I should have said is that there are many leaders in Kansas working on this issue.  There is a lot of excitement here about getting more kids outside.  One group doing great work is Kansas Wildscape, which has started the WildLifer Challenge for kids.  Here's the link in case anyone would like to learn more about it:  http://www.kansaswildscape.org/programdetails.aspx?id=3.  And I definitely want to check out the Grassroots Coordinators Group!

Thanks, Suz!  I am a leader in the children and nature movement in Kansas, and this looks like a great resource.  I look forward to participating and learning from everyone!

Thank you for the warm welcome Suz.  I am working on a graduate degree in curriculum and instruction combined with an elementary education licensure.  With A background in the natural sciences and experiential education, I am hoping to develop A graduate project on place-based education in the Missoula/Montana area and look forward to exploring this site further!

Hi Suz, Gratitude for your warm welcome note...... It will be my pleasure to connect the activities from India to this platform. Also, I would feel pleasure if you could guide our team to induct children activities in India through this platform.....

Thank you for the warm welcome!  I am still very new here.... a bit clueless I guess... :) I will try to update my nature day soon. Have a beautiful day in nature! :)

Thanks for the warm welcome.  We are hosting a weekend event next week called "Just Get OUT" to encourage parents and teachers to take kids outdoors up here in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador.  I look forward to hearing of what others are up to.

Thank you Suz.  I have so many ideas and loose ends.  I'll eventually get around to following  through with them.

Hi Suz - thanks for the welcome! I love the activities, events and ideas gathered here, and am looking forward to being more involved. I've been reading posts here for a long time, and feel that there are many kindred souls connected here. I hope that any like minded families in SW CT will get to know our school - a child's oasis in the midst of our fast paced communities! Thanks so much, Beth Skudder (from Connecticut Friends School: www.CTFriendsSchool.org)
