Profile Information

How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
I am currently involved as an environmental educator, connecting kids to nature. I work at the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden and also at the San Luis Obispo County Office of Education.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I'm interested because of the disconnect modern children have to nature and to one another. this "nature deficit disorder" as it has been referred to by author Richard Louv is both part of the problem and the solution to a more sustainable future. The more nature appreciation the children in our society have, then the more committed they will be to protecting it. I am interested in natural building techniques and networking in SLO County.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
I am a credentialed teacher as well as a trained outdoor educator. I coordinate the regional CREEC Network, which is a network of environmental educators in SLO County, SB County, Ventura County and Kern County.
Your Personal Website (if you have one)
What aspects of the sustainability movement most interests you?
I can include postings through the CREEC Network. I can also network with the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden, which is creating a environmentally sustainable public garden on 150 acres in El Chorro Regional Park.
Your Favorite Books/Websites/Blogs/RSS Feeds for Information about the Sustainability Movement
Global Mind Shift is a great website.
Last Child in the Woods is a great book by Richard Louv.
Also, Coyote Guide by Jon Young and others.
Natural Building Network is a great online resource.

Thank you very much! I will be in Big Sur tomorrow and won't be available until Friday. Would it be okay if I could come pick it up on Friday afternoon? If not, next week works as well.

Hi Tree!

My name is Kris and I work for the City of SLO as a Park Ranger. I teach Environmental Education and would love as much info as you have! I have checked out the CREEC site and was a little over whelmed because my background isn't in Standardized teaching. Do you have any cool resources for lesson plan ideas? Thanks for all you do!

Hi Tree,
I saw you dancing the other night and now I know why you were at the Chamber Green! You are a force that is doing great work! I hope to see you around!

Hi Trees!
So wonderful to see your smiling face here, as elsewhere. I want to read some of those favorite books. You'll be a great asset to this movement!

Hi Tree Lees of SLO. Great to see you here!

It would be great if you could post one or two of your local events. Even if they're local, they're news and inspiration to other communities wondering how they might get involved.

Again, we're delighted to see you. Ask questions. Talk with people. Have fun!

and WOW what a resource! thanks again for joining!
