Children and Nature

 Richard Louv and the Children & Nature Network are heralding a movement to return children to nature.  Louv wrote the scholarly yet accessible book, The Last Child in the Woods.

Studies show that our children are suffering physical, emotional and mental consequences due to their lack of time in Nature.  Children and Nature Network hosts a website filled with the latest stats on nature deficiency as well as uplifting stories from those who are reconnecting with the earth.  It's a site worth checking for the latest info on developmental health and environment.  Plus, there are recommendations for fun outdoor activities!
