IMPORTANT - Cancellation of the
American Forest Kindergarten Conference!

Hello colleges and friends of AFKA. After much deliberation, the American Forest Kindergarten Association Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the AFKA conference set for August 9-11, 2019. We deeply apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. All refunds should be posted by July 25th.

In the months since Erin Kenny’s passing, we as a board and organization have realized that we have to take the necessary time to support and strengthen AFKA’s foundation. It is our truest intention to honor Erin Kenny, the incredible work she has done for outdoor educators, and the gift she wholeheartedly shared with the world.

As we shift our focus to our larger vision, we want to ensure our commitment to our members and the Forest Kindergarten community at large. Our mission is to be a source of support through mentorship, resources, professional development, and collaboration, and we are excited to continue our work on this path.

We are optimistic about the future of AFKA and look forward to sharing the journey with you. Please confirm that you have received this message and let us know if you have any questions as we are happy to talk.

Our best,

The American Forest Kindergarten Association Board of Directors
