This Saturday I am attending the Leave No Child Indoors conference put on by Chicago Wilderness. I am excited! This past week I spoke with folks involved with the Children and Nature Forum in San Francisco and Islandwood in Seattle, and have read about similar programs elsewhere in the Pacific Northwest, but have barely begun to explore the nature-based education available here in my own region.
UPDATE: Assuming there is a signal in the conference area, I will be tweeting sessions using the hashtag #ncli. Follow me @Hear_K12 and the conference's feed @lnci.
