Founding Member, Wild Things
Bellingham, WA
I am a founding mama of the Wild Things program, as I showed up at the park in the rain with my six month old baby in a carrier. Why? Because I wanted to be more of a nature nerd than my husband. That was nearly 7 years ago, and I've been a frequent flyer of this program. I can give you my perspective as a participant of a program focused on early childhood development, engaging multiple generations in their own learning and what I learned about natural history (turns out I am MUCH more of a nature nerd than my husband). I can also share what I've learned about myself and my children after spending nearly every week in nature for 5 years.
