Denver here we come! Adios DC, it was fun!

Old friends meet again, Secretary Salazar and the Gilmores

Ah, we just finished our last meeting. We met with Nate Hawley and Robin Synder with the Department of Interior. We also left an ELK hoodie for Secretary Salazar, we tried to get in with him to say a quick, “Hello”, but as usual he was running. Maybe Secretary Salazar will wear it when he plays basketball with the President and they’ll talk about ELK!!!

We accomplished so much this visit, most of all reconnected and met fantastic people doing such great work. I know many new partnerships are going to come from this visit, and best of all Environmental Learning for Kids (ELK) was part of a historic event that the White House created to further the conversation and action on connecting kids and families to the outdoors through education. I’m getting ready to finish packing up and then taking the Metro to the airport. We’ll be back in D-town by 7 p.m. tonight, time to hang out with the kiddos before it all starts again tomorrow. Who does 7:30 a.m. board meeting’s, jeezzzzz!?
