To start us off, connecting ourselves and our children with nature this summer will be fun, easy, and educational with The Big Book of Nature Activities, by award winning environmental advocate Drew Monkman and outdoor education center director Jacob Rodenburg.

The Big Book of Nature Activities is a comprehensive guide for parents and educators to help youth of all ages explore, appreciate and connect with the natural world.

The average child can identify over 1000 corporate logos, but only 10 native plants or animals—a telling indictment of our modern disconnection from nature. Soaring levels of obesity, high rates of ADHD, feelings of stress and social awkwardness and Nature Deficit Disorder are further unintended consequences of a childhood spent primarily indoors. As researchers in the field are arguing, it is our duty to get children back outside not just for their own health and development, but also for the sake of tomorrow’s environment.

Packed with activities for every season of the year, you’ll find an overview of what is going on at that time of year, poems, collection challenges, learning about geographical areas, continent-wide species, tips for parents, and much more!
