Google Group

Thanks for all the input, everyone. I love knowing that you're all out there ready to help me with answers."

ANCA encourages nature and environmental learning center administrators to register and join the ANCA Google Group. This forum is for people to share ideas, questions, challenges, and successes about the nature and environmental learning center profession. Anyone can join — you do not need to be a member of ANCA or have a Gmail. Many administrators from throughout the country use this service to post questions to other nature center professionals.

How to Join:

  • Go to the Google Group and click "Apply for membership."
    • If you do not have a Gmail Account and do not want to create one, you can join the ANCA Google Group by creating a Google Account with the email of your choice. Fill out this form to connect your email to a Google Account and then go to the Google Group.

How It Works:

Items you post on our Google Group listserve are both posted online and circulated to subscribers via e-mail. Messages that are sent will show up to most members as e-mails. You have the option to receive all the ANCA e-mails, receive a daily digest of the day's messages, or receive no e-mails.


We ask that you do not use the listserv for commercial purposes. If you wish to advertise or have a great market resource for our members, please contact us to inquire about marketing opportunities.

Avoid large attachments. They can disrupt email service for some members. Instead, let users know that a document or form is available and they can contact you directly or provide the website address it can be found at. ANCA will consider posting your document on our website pending review. Contact us about this option.
