Great opportunity: San Francisco Corps for Education Outside announced its 2013-14 applications. SF's is the first service corps program in the U.S. dedicated to transforming urban public schools into centers of 21st century experiential learning, sustainability and innovation.

Bay Area Children in Nature Coalition was featured in Parent's Press! Great article about the importance of nature and the barriers to nature play.

Thanks for starting this group, Kyle!  Our discussion at the previous quarterly meeting was great.  Do you know when the next meeting will be held?

Hi Kyle,  Thanks for starting this group.  San Francisco and the Bay Area have so many creative people with innovative, effective programs and projects to connect children/youth and nature - it will be great to get connected here and let others know about them!
