This week has been slower than last week, but we have made progress nonetheless.
HERE'S WHAT WE ARE DOING:
GROUP LETTER TO BOARD MEMBERS
The group letter requested that the We Love Warner group work with the Manitou Fund to develop a transition plan. The letter was sent by email and also by snail mail to all four board members. We currently have not had any responses from any of the board members.
As a reminder, the group letter suggested that we want to help with the vision for Warner. We believe that collectively we can contribute our experience, knowledge, and expertise gained from hundreds of combined years at this award-winning nature center. We are confident that we have the skills to help with and ease a transition to maintain the relationships of the schools and the support of the community at large. We want to minimize the impact on the children, the community, and the land.
RESULTS OF TEACHER SURVEY
We have assessed and compiled a report for the results of the survey we sent to teachers that have previously brought their students to the WNC. We plan on sending the results to interested parties as well as post them on the website for everyone to see. When you read through the teachers’ responses, you can really feel the passion for Warner behind their answers. Teach Survey Results >>>
WE LOVE WARNER’s FUTURE
Moving forward with this group’s future, We Love Warner may transition into a group that hosts monthly get-togethers for volunteers and staff. It will be a way for people linked to the Warner Nature Center to reconnect, hike, and reminisce about Warner. Some locations and dates have already been thrown around.
