About a year ago I joined an educator event at Camp Long that would include some elements of wilderness training. We did a couple of games and I loved it. Over the last couple weeks Marco and I volunteered by giving demonstrations at the West Seattle Bee Garden (which we built with our neighbors in 2013) for school field trips.
I really enjoy connecting kids with nature. I also developed a big passion for books about nature expeditions (bike rides across the US, pilger trails and the PCT). I read about others adventures and watch Survival shows for a while. I think it's the craving for simplicity that calls me.
Coming across a guidance book for mentoring with a nature approach sounds perfect. Today my summer lecture arrived and I got to share one part, the Sit Spot, with Tim. I am looking forward to try out some activities and let more nature experiences take over my life.

After being a bit disappointed about my birthday bees were hauled off by a Parks person last month, I was really sad every time I walked passed my empty hive box sitting in our backyard. But today I noticed some activity of bees flying in the front of the box and took a closer look and...
... I could not believe it. I found a new swarm of Magic Bees just moved in my hive box.
Yeah! Welcome little Magic bees! So happy you found the home I had ready for you!
