Join us for a special evening
“Children are drawn to nature. Plop any five-year-old down in the middle of the forest of a field, sit back and watch. Within minutes he or she will begin to look around, touch blades of grass, or pick through leaves and acorns. Leave her a while longer and the relationship might become more involved, the child picking flowers or throwing rocks into a stream. Come back in a few hours and you might find her up a tree, facing down a skunk, or hidden away inside a fort of her own making. Within those few hours of risk, self-discovery and imagination will have been born-something intangible but valuable-between the subject and the object, child, and nature” Karen A.
