There is strong demand across New York to form regional networks for forest and nature schools! As you can imagine, there is quite a distance from one part of the state to the next. The first meeting will take place on June 1 (below) in the Western part of the state. If you would like to organize in your neck of the woods, we'd love more organizers to help form smaller regional chapters. Contact the director, Monica Wiedel-Lubinski if you'd like to help!
Our next meeting...
The first organizing meeting will take place Friday, June 1 from 4-5 p.m. at Allegany State Park during the long-standing Allegany Nature Pilgrimage
event. There is no charge to attend this meeting, but you may want to check out the full-day "What About A Forest School?" session that kicks off the event. (The free NY chapter meeting follows the session.) If you plan to attend the meeting, please contact the organizer, Megan Mills Hoffman.
There is never a cost to attend a chapter meeting! The purpose is to build networks across your state, and form more localized networks in your community. Add your name to the Eastern Region Association of Forest and Nature School (ERAFANS) contact list to stay connected
or become an ERAFANS member
to save on nature-based professional development throughout the year. Feel free to reach out to your state chapter's organizer's for more information.
