Find Us Outside Nature Immersion Program
Nancy Schutts: Forest Kindergarten Leader
Nancy created Find Us Outside in March of 2016 with the support of her family and assistance of the Board of Directors. Nancy has an Administrative Degree, ECE Degree, EE Certificate, and a Level Three Forest Kindergarten Teaching Certificate.
Nancy's passion for the outdoors was fostered by her parents' love of nature. Living in tents as a child each summer in the Great Lakes with her family offered endless nature immersive experiences. Her desire to start Find Us Outside as a nonprofit is to pass on similar experiences and an appreciation of nature with children and their families, as her parents did with her.
