Adults & Families

In Last Child in the Woods - Saving our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder, author Richard Louv links the absence of nature in our wired children's lives with the rise in obesity, attention disorders and depression.

Teaching children about wildlife, especially if you can get outside in nature, also moves them closer to caring about wildlife and their habitats.

For their own well being and for that of our precious natural world, children need opportunities to learn about, personally interact with and experience nature.
