What do you want?

When was the last time someone actually asked you that? Even better what was the last time you felt like some one would listen? Ok so maybe I can't help you with the million dollars and a house beach side that you just asked for but what can I do to make this group better for you? I started this years ago and at the time I had a toddler and a new job. Since then I have decided I really want to make this a bigger part of my life. Raising a child in a world where many have lost their connection to nature has made me want to invest more time in connecting people with nature.

Here is a bit more about me. I have a full time job as an ecologist. I have also been an artist for years and I just wanted a way to meet like minded folks and help them see all the wonder and magic I see when I go outside. Even if it is one tree on a city block I guarantee there is a lot to learn. I am taking a couple of short courses through Cornell so I can become better at this endeavor. I know in the past my problem has been consistency. While that has never been my strong suit I am at a place in my life where I can spend more time on this BUT I need your help.

What do you want? What would you like to see? I am 100% open to ideas. I want this to be something that you find meaningful and worth your time. I know this is a broad question but since this is not my full time job I want to make sure any energy I put into this is pushing me towards my goals and yours.

Please feel free to let me know, I really want to hear you input. Together we can make this better.

I don't have a specific idea yet. I'm just enjoying the journey so far. Each time we gather you point out a new technique that I try to follow: zoom in-zoom out, contour or comparison. I like learning to see nature with new eyes while sketching and adding notes to attempt at a field guide presentation.

Thanks for the lessons. If I think of a new direction, Ill let you know.
