Speakers: Tom & Brinkley Hutchings

Topic: Turning Wonder into Action

Since Brinkley was old enough to walk, Tom and

Brinkley (father and daughter) have been working

together to care for the natural world. They share

their story of how their connection to the natural

world motivates them to make positive change in

our community.

Tom and Brinkley Hutchings are a father daughter team working to protect the natural world. Tom is a marine biologist and owner of EcoSolutions in Daphne. Brinkley is the founding director Nature Connect Outdoor School in Montrose. They believe that helping people connect with nature is essential for the well-being of the planet and all of its inhabitants. 

Bring a chair and enjoy a lovely outdoor program at Chastang Field. There will NOT be a Program at the Fellowship building on the same day. All members and friends are encouraged to join us at Blakeley. 




CAMPSITE: We will be camping at the Tensaw 1 & 2 Group Campsites (1) on map below. These campsites are for tent camping, only. RVs or campers are not allowed at the Tensaw sites. There is limited availability for car-attached tent camping. There is running water and 3 large picnic tables at each group campsite, as well as fire rings. Fire wood is available for purchase at the Blakeley office. For more information about camping and activities at Blakeley State Park, click here

FOOD & WATER: Each family will be responsible for their own food/drinks, except for Sunday lunch following the program which will be provided. Each group campsite has a spigot with potable water. Be sure to secure your food when not in use so that wild animals and hungry children don't get into it...

BATHROOMS: There are two bathrooms located at the campsite. There are NOT showers at the campsite, but there are showers at the bathrooms near the staff area.  

PARKING: There is limited parking at the group campsite. To keep it from looking like we're camping in a parking lot, please park in the designated parking areas. For those who are camping, you can pull your car in to unload, then take it to the parking lot.

ACTIVITIES: We will have some arts & crafts activities for everyone. Enjoy the spontaneity of the outdoors!

MUSIC: Calling all musicians! We will have some sing-along songbooks with chords for the musicians among us. Plan to sing around the campfire each evening! 

PETS: Unfortunately, we are not allowed to bring our pets to the campout.
