The New Nature Movement: Connecting Kids with the Outdoors

7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

Description

The more high-tech our lives become, the more nature we need. Families worldwide are confirming what science shows – spending time in nature produces powerful benefits for young children, including reduced depression and anxiety, improved focus, better social bonding and enhanced learning and creativity. Together we will learn how to connect young children to the natural world as we welcome Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder. The program will conclude with a Q&A session. For parents and caregivers of children ages 0-8.

Purchase the book through Bookbar, here.

*Spanish, Arabic and Russian language interpretation will be available.
