Oh yeah- we have Homosassa Springs, Weeki Watchi with manatees, and Chinsegut Conservation Center here within half an hour of our location, Golden Rainbow Ranch, in Brooksville.  People would be welcome to camp out on our property instead of paying for a hotel.  We also have a nature center where you could sleep on an air mattress, and an extra king and a single in our house.

I am aiming for something like a 2 day workshop in November.  Would people be willing to travel to Brooksville?  One group I would like to get out, and I have spoken to, is the "Nature Explore" outdoors classroom group.  I am working on a grant with a women's shelter to get them an outdoors classroom from this program, and want to get our ranch certified as well.  They do two different 3 hr. trainings for $1800, so let me know if you know of any grants that might cover this.  If you would like to present your program, or do an activity or a lecture on your area of expertise, let me know!

Hi Florida folks! I'm a 30 year veteran environmental educator... Looking to connect to others in FL. Currently work as EE specialist for CREW Land & Water Trust and do some consulting. Want to know more about getoutdoorsFlorida and will be checking that website. Looking for examples of libraries that are getting kids outdoors.

We, Remote Footprints, just joined the Children and Nature Network and are excited to be apart of this network opportunity.  Our mission is to help families and individuals build greater relationships with the natural world through experiential learning.  We are based in the Florida panhandle (Tallahassee) and will be offering camping clinics, natural history hikes, citizen scientist activities, and other ways to get outside.  We have a mailing list if anyone is interested in being notified of upcoming activities.


As for favorite parks, I am a big fan of all the coastal parks and St. George Island SP has always been near and dear to my heart.  Children don't seem to need any entertainment at the beach and there is so much to learn!!

Hello fellow Floridians...please offer your suggestions for favorite parks to visit with preschoolers and families and why those parks are so special to you.  I'm hoping to get out more to explore.  Thanks in advance for your comments!

It's a coalition of government agencies, non-profits, and the private sector to raise awareness on getting kids outdoors. It's basically the statewide version of C&NN, with a little more of a twist towards fish and wildlife type activities. I usually attend the meetings (in Tallahassee) but you should check out the website. It's only a couple of years old and we just got 501c non-profit status.
