http://richardlouv.com/children-nature-resources
We’ve compiled helpful resources for parents, teachers, and community leaders to help them encourage children’s enjoyment of the great outdoors. Parents, grandparents, and other relatives are the first responders, but they cannot resolve society’s nature-deficit disorder by themselves. Educators, health care professionals, policy-makers, business people, urban designers—all must lend a hand
