Did anyone notice the new badge on my blog? I am now officially a part of the National Wildlife Federation’s Founding Mothers Advisory Board. Crazy, no? I mean, yes I have written on this blog about the importance of having a Green Hour every day. And yes, the NWF has used my writing here and there, as well as some of my photos on their site in the past . . . .but me? Really?
Here is the press release about the group:
“The Be Out There movement is guided by a group of busy moms who engage with parents through their social media networks. Their authentic way of addressing the challenges and joys of parenthood makes them uniquely qualified to advise the National Wildlife Federation on Be Out There’s initiative.”
This is a pretty incredible group of women! Many are professional bloggers (is that the right term?) with throngs of followers. Some are homeschooling Moms with days so filled with nature and beauty it makes me want to cry to read their posts. But all of us are committed to the premise that it is good for our children to be outside, playing, unstructured (even, gasp! unsupervised?) interacting with nature and finding their place in the world.
So, anyway, check these blogs, get a little inspiration, and then get going.
Be Out There!
