Re-Engage with Nature
As many of you may know, we recently submitted our paperwork to make Backyard Wilds a Not for Profit Organization. The reason is because we are getting more and more people asking how they can help, or how they can learn more. All those requests have made it more apparent that Backyard Wilds needs to be able to help solve some of the bigger problems that we (staff here and those involved in our community of learners) see in the world. To help make that happen we need to make it easier and more plausible to get support, grants, and offer more classes and instruction to those who might not be able to afford opportunities that we offer.
The Problems We See
In this post, as well as a few posts following, I will talk in more depth about some of the problems we will be addressing. The first problem is that we are ignoring nature. We are missing the ever-changing beauty, the complex systems, the ample peace, the adventure, and the scope and magnitude of all the world!
Here is a brief (3-minute) video that beautifully articulates one of the problems we see, and are working to correct!
