AMC Moderates Children & Nature Network Panel

The Appalachian Mountain Club's (AMC) Director of Education, Pam Hess, moderated an August 11 panel on diversity in nature at the fourth annual Children & Nature Network (C&NN) Grassroots Gathering, August 11-13 in Princeton, New Jersey. This year’s theme, "Leading to Change: An Exploration of Collaborative Leadership," is designed to advance the scale, pace, and success of the international movement to reconnect children and nature by providing practical tools, firsthand experience and transferable methods.

The panel moderated by Hess, "Leading to Diversity," reflected the focus of C&NN’s Natural Leaders and their emphasis on diversity in nature. Participants offered personal perspectives and experiences in successfully engaging a wide range of people and communities in connecting with the natural world.
