Inspiring Meaningful Connections to the Natural World
Identify and share stories of the past and present that connect us to a shared vision of caring and concern for our neighborhoods, open spaces, parks and other special places today and into the future.
Support the connection between health, wellness and outdoor recreation across the lifespan by creating multiple opportunities to engage with nature: leading walks, writing / nature journal workshops and retreats, and other activities to discover the mysteries of the natural world.
Janice immediately impressed me with her ability to articulate our vision through curriculum development and delivery. Her work with our LEAF Program was stellar. We provided our ideas and she ran with hem.

I’ve known Janice Kelley for 15 years. We first met as docents at Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park in Sacramento. We’ve kept in touch ever since. We became friends because we had similar values. We both like working with people and teaching about history. She enjoys being with children and adults and helping them in finding the joy of learning. Her Nature Detectives program brings children into the outdoors to expand their horizons. Janice is also a very fine photographer.
Her book featuring stories and photography at the Fair Oaks Bridge and American River is a visual delight. I hope you have the opportunity to work with Janice. She is so talented in so many fields.
