It's a Matter of Heart

Nature Learning Community has recently been presented with the unique  and very special opportunity to host Jon Young and Kathleen Lockyer for a speaking engagement on April 15, 2018 in Ann Arbor, MI.  To make it possible, Nature Learning Community has an immediate need to raise funds to cover the costs of the event.  We kindly ask for your financial support in hosting Jon and Kathleen in this community.

Jon Young is a  world-renowned author and nature connection guru.  Kathleen Lockyer is his long-time collaborator and designer of approaches to outdoors education and mental health.  Jon's life-long work in creating nature connected communities world-wide has directly inspired the many programs and offerings of Nature Learning Community, and will continue to do so for years to come.  Thank you in advance for your generous support!  (And we very much hope you'll join us at the event:  Register Here  ).

For a deeper dive into Jon's work, check out this video: 

Please note: Any funds in excess of our goal will be gratefully saved towards hosting our next public event.  

In gratitude and connection,
Nature Learning Community
