  • How to Find Gratitude in Nature

    Posted May 21, 2020
    Gratitude is the antidote to struggle and fear. Fear puts the brain into fight, flight, or freeze mode. When I am grateful, I feel like I am more in right, might, and be mode. learn more »

    Posted April 4, 2020

So excited to be a part of this campaign and to help take people beyond #ResponsibleRecreation to advocacy for wild places and spaces. Spread the word!!NEW! -Beyond #ResponsibleRecreation to Human-Nature Relationship
Presenter: Michelle Doerr
July 15 and 22, 2020 from 1-3 PM EDT
Two-part webinar series [FREE]
Register at matlearning.org/

As part of the #ResponsibleRecreation campaign, one of the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies' goals is to "promote Responsible Recreation as a critical way to mitigate the stress and anxiety of the current COVID 19 crisis, supporting the health of America." This project will use COVID-19 as an opportunity to deeply connect participants to the environment/nature and attempt to go further to create advocates for public outdoor spaces. To be responsible is to have an obligation to do something and that something is to develop a relationship with the land, water and air nearby.

This is a series of two webinars held one week apart and requires a pre-webinar homework assignment and completion of a survey of your homework reflections prior to the first webinar.

The first webinar will focus on homework reflection, self-awareness and self-care with regard to nature. We will begin to understand how our environmental identities are developed. The second webinar will dive deeper into environmental identity, human-nature relationship and how concepts from the series can be used to help agencies move outdoor participants and recreationists from users to advocates.
