Education Links & Resources

The Conservancy’s educational programs feature the work of Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods, which emphasizes the importance of directly exposing children to nature. For more information on this book and the important ideas it presents, click here to visit the official site. The Children and Nature Network, created in response to Last Child in the Woods, also serves as a valuable resource for parents, educators, and others who want to learn more. We encourage you to explore these resources and your role in connecting children and nature while developing an environmental ethic.
