    Hey, this is such great site! I moved to Portland recently from WI, where I was working at a nonprofit effort to involve community members in education around local and sustainable living, nature connection, and community building. Since coming to Portland, I’ve been trying to develop ways to continue this effort here both through local organizations and on my own. I would love to let your members and subscribers know about what I’m offering in terms of nature workshops, mentoring, and consulting. I have kids and grandkids of my own here, and I am dedicated to helping young families find ways to deepen their connection with wild nature and become more responsible members of their wild and human communities. I have been sharing my skills and experience with folks spontaneously as I meet them on the trail and through free venues, but I am also trying to support myself, so I offer a variety of workshops and custom classes and mentoring. You can learn more about me and workshops I offer at http://www.learnnatureskills.com and at the Nature Connection meetup site in Portland at http://www.meetup.com/Nature-Connection/.

    One workshop your members might be interested in that’s coming up soon is a nature connection workshop offered at Breitenbush Hotsprings July 15-17. You can get more info on this at the 2 sites above or by contacting Breitenbush at office@breitenbush.com.

    I really appreciate what you are doing here, and I hope to be able to support and participate in your efforts as time goes on. Thanks, Cader Olive
