Helping nature centers succeed in a 21st century world.


NEWS FLASH! I have teamed up with Rachel Larimore, author of Establishing a Nature-Based Preschool, to offer business planning services to (of course!) nature-based preschools. See my January 21 blog post for more details!

David Catlin Consulting LLC provides a full spectrum of consulting support for nature centers, environmental learning centers, and similar facilities. I especially focus on centers that are experiencing transitions—new sites, buildings, and exhibits; new strategic directions; new business models; new partnerships; and new leadership. When appropriate, I will assemble a team of professionals to address the most complex situations. Services include:

• Strategic plan facilitation
• Business planning
• Interpretive planning
• Marketing assessments and plans
• Development of new nature centers
• Executive coaching
• Staff and board training
• Site evaluation and selection (for new centers)
• Development of site and architectural programs (often as part of a design team)
• Other related projects

Contact us for a detailed proposal tailored to address your needs.

The “Talk Is Cheap” Offer

Do you need a quick assessment, some specific advice, or just a credible outside opinion presented by a consultant in a coat and tie? I will spend a day at your site, reviewing, discussing, and providing feedback on any issues or questions you choose, at no charge. Your organization just needs to cover my expenses. Contact me for details.
