As summer begins and thoughts turn to time spent outdoors, please plan to join Orion
writers Richard Louv and David Sobel, national experts on reconnecting ourselves and kids with nature, for a discussion of Louv's The Nature Principle
and Sobel's Wild Play
, on June 16th at 7 p.m. (EDT). They will be joined by filmmaker Camilla Rockwell whose new documentary film, Mother Nature's Child,
is opening minds regarding our powerful connection to nature developed over millennia.
What do we risk as a result of our societal disconnect with nature? What is our responsibility to our kids in this regard? Don't miss this unique opportunity to reset your assumptions about the hows and whys of immersing ourselves in the natural world, and to ask these experts your own questions.
The event will be moderated by Orion
staff and is free, but registration is required.
