Learning something everyday...

This job has been such an amazing opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and connect....usually around nature. I wanted to share my gratitude about some of the cool things I learn everyday. Maybe something will inspire you, too.

Illahee Elementary

During an interview today with the garden coordinator, I learned about so many great program ideas, such as this home garden kit. Complete with seeds on paper to plant and grow. She learned from a dear colleague in Battle Ground. Brilliant!

Back to school during COVID

Super excited to partner with GOSY professionals around the country to help create guidelines for creating safe outdoor spaces for students headed back to school. US did it in 1915, as this Library of Congress image shows.....we can do it again.

Scouts partnership

Inspiring conversation with local scouting partners who want to help build features at schools. From landscape projects to enhance beauty, to outdoor classrooms like this one built by an Eagle Scout at Camas Woodburn ES. Thanks partners!

Reach out and let's chat. I'll bring the tea and we can talk about how we can help.
