The "quakernature" web site was started in Sept, 2000. There
are typically 10 visits per week to "quakernature", most often
by means of a link posted on <www.quaker.org>.
New material should be posted at least quarterly to best serve its purpose.

- individual Quakers who want to participate in the Committee's work
- a few organizations that share the Committee's concerns, such as:
- PYM Ministry & Oversight Committee
- Friends Committee on Unity with Nature
- New England Yearly Meeting Friends in Unity with Nature
- EarthLight magazine (a publication stemming from PYM-CUN)

- Exploration of changes in the culture of inhabitants (ourselves) of
the [over]developed world that would ameliorate the ecological damage we

multiple points of view on spirit-led ecological awareness,
- Communications to and from correspondents in monthly meetings,
- Joint preparation of letters for circulation within and outside PYM,
