The Natural Phenomena conference - Wild woods, Whangarei

This weekend we were lucky enough to be chosen as workshop presenters at the Natural Phenomena conference held in the Wild Woods just outside Whangarei. It is just an amazing site - in a glade surrounded by tall tress, Puriri, Kauri, Kahakitea, and Lacebark. The keynote speakers presented in a marquee and we presented under the trees in 'The Rockery" on log stools.

 Griffin Longley, CEO of Natureplay WA, Australia and Steve Gurney, adventure athlete were both fantastic speakers providing inspiration and provocation to get children outdoors. Did you know children are doing 2000 steps less a day than the minimum required to avoid obesity!!!!
 The organising committee - a committed group of volunteers did a fabulous job and the food was fab too. All in all a wonderful Wild Woods professional development experience.
Next year pencil in the 4th weekend in November for another great conference in the outdoors.
