Forest Educators aren't afraid to get a little dirty... 

IWe have passion for getting people connected to nature. 

We work long hours in all kinds of weather.   We're the staff trainers, and the office assistant, and the janitor and the marketing manager too.

We stay up late looking at YouTube videos on new nature crafts or researching the Swedish Folklore about birch trees.

Our fingers are stained from natural clays & black walnut pigment.

This podcast is for all of the educators who are deep in the trenches, because you are not alone, and I see you.   You're part of a larger movement that is changing humanity and we're gonna talk about it!     I hope you enjoy the show.
