I started Adventures With Nature LLC with a few goals in mind:
- To re-wild myself: I felt a profound need to get back to Nature and the activities that brought me joy, peace of mind, and a sense of wonder.
- To reconnect with my past professional life as a environmental and outdoor educator: I spent well over a decade teaching children and adults how to experience the great outdoors in fun and meaningful ways and I missed it.
- To promote conservation and preservation of our local natural habitats through outdoor recreation: My childhood was filled with wild adventures in nature and I grew up in the suburbs of NJ! Those adventures fostered a deep appreciation for the wild world that exists all around us, even in our own backyards. I want to show others that you do not have to travel far to have wild adventures, or to experience awe and wonder in nature. My hope is that through my classes and writings others will be moved to care more deeply for the natural world near and far.
- To promote products and services I have used or think are worth learning more about.
