Could we see the QR screen again?
Elisabeth Hartman
02:04:56
I recently completed the course Jennifer just mentioned, I found it useful & inspiring! One of the great aspects of the course is that it gives you the foundation to create a cz project of your own, but if you aren't in a place where you're ready to do that, you have the background to facilitate participation for your group in an already existing project (like e-Bird!) ;)
Karen Power
02:05:17
Got it! Thank you!!
Kosby Carrico
02:05:29
please share the link for future watching. Is it something that can be shared in a closed group of facilitators that do nature based education?

Thanks for the mention about leading walks/inquiry for adults/parents. Lots of parent and child time these days and they should feel more comfortable in being outside and sharing the outdoors with them!

The emphasis on not answering questions right away is great- get them to think, research , speculate, etc.
