Title or Role
Founder, President, and Lead Instructor
Coast Live Oak School
I have been a teacher in the classroom and outdoors for 19 years, and have dedicated myself to understanding many different approaches to teaching and learning. I have been learning and practicing indigenous and ancestral wilderness skills for 13 years, and teaching them for 8 years.

At Coast Live Oak School we integrate history, ecology, wilderness skills, and real life problem solving. We play, explore, tell stories, make things with our hands, and reflect on our experiences together. Our classroom is the great living Earth.

Hi Mark, I’m passing on this note from Rich.


I'd like to invite you to an event coming up in the LA area on Tuesday evening. I
hope you'll consider attending -- and inviting your friends and associates, too.


The book formerly known as "Alleged New Book" is now published as
"The Nature Principle: Human Restoration and the End of Nature-Deficit
Disorder." The event is free and open to the public. My presentation and
the discussion will be about the expansion of the children and nature movement
to adults, the future of environmentalism -- and the emergence of what I call
the New Nature Movement (

I'll will likely be arriving a bit early and staying afterward to sign books
and visit with friends. Hope to see you there, and whether or not you can make
it, please do let people know about it. Thanks!

Hi Mark! Hearty welcome to C&NN Connect. Your school sounds wonderful. (And, as  a native Southern Californian, it's nice to read "coast live oak.") I hope you make yourself at home in discussions and groups and find plenty of like-minded people. You might enjoy our Natural Teachers Network. Hope to see you again soon.
