"What do parents owe their young that is more important than a warm and trusting connection to the Earth . . . ?" Thomas Berry

Kids at a pondAllowing a young child to experience the natural world is not just a nice thing to do. It is vital - for the future of our children, the future of our culture and indeed the future of all life.

Children have a basic need to establish a deep emotional connection to the natural world. Children and Nature workshops help parents, grandparents, caregivers, and educators foster that developing bond.

Children and Nature is part of Hooked On Nature - a network of individuals and organizations dedicated to instilling children with a love and respect for the Earth.
