How can you inspire your friends, neighbors, and community to discover the great outdoors and reconnect with nature?

:

White Pine Programs strives to create strong foundations of nature connection for our mentors so that they may provide the community with a sense of deep connection to our rich natural environment. With the help of this grant, White Pine will train and evaluate our eager community of naturalist mentors in wildlife awareness through Cybertracker Conservation; a groundbreaking international system of training and evaluation. With a certified Cybertracker Evaluator on staff, White Pine can become an officially sanctioned source for Cybertracker evaluations allowing us to provide internationally recognized certificates to our already strong community of wildlife trackers. Our hope is that certified trackers will contribute to local wildlife education, monitoring, and research efforts. Our environment will be well served when every neighborhood is aware of its unique ecological significance and rich diversity of wildlife.

How do you plan to use the $1,000 grant and $500 airline gift card to turn your idea into a reality?

We will support White Pine's Track & Sign Specialist and mentor Dan Hansche in becoming a certified Cybertracker Evaluator. Dan has already secured a 100% score in Track & Sign Identification in the New England new region, half-way to achieving this goal. Now he must reach that same level of competence in another region of the US or abroad. The $1000 will cover preparation and certification fees, the $500 airfare voucher will get him there.

I wish that we had more wildlife awareness for the refuse thrown out in garbage collection in Portland Oregon.

Dan Hansche has a sensitive intellegence to the dynamics of nature. As White Pines's Track & Sign Specialist his abilities to draw out connections from visual markings ans sightings emphasize energies dormant to a novice awakening an internal compass originating from our earth.

For the second year, I'm participating in the Tracking Apprenticeship offered by White Pine Programs. My knowledge and ability in tracking has grown immensely from time spent with White Pine Programs, not to mention the fire of deeper nature connection being fanned. A vote for White Pine Programs increases their ability, through Dan, to offer these things.

Dan is an amazing tracker and passionate outdoor educator. I had the honor to be present during his eval and was as impressed with his humility as I was his tracking ability. This grant is an investment in community building in the highest sense, especially with Dan as the ambassador of ancestral skill sets being handed to the next generation.

Hi Dan and everyone at White Pines! We meet many years ago when I was at the University of New Hampshire and attended the Building Strong Naturalist Communities workshop in Maine that you hosted at the farm. Congratulations on all your work! I entered with The Nature Yoga and have been in San Luis Obispo, California for several years working as a Naturalist and now Yoga Instructor. Come visit anytime!

Happy Trails,
Heather
