Spring break

Since my kids are on spring break from school, I thought I bring up an article on another type of education, nature. This article, “Americans Spend Less Time on Nature Activities: Study” by By Julie Steenhuysen is over at Reuters. It shows that outdoor activities have fallen by more than 20 percent since the 1980’s.

To see or read more on nature and kids, check out the book “Last Child in the Woods” by Richard Louv’s or go to the Child & Nature Network for more information. Both good resources.

Sincerely-

Green Librarian
