Nature as educator. It' what we had for millennia, then we got some silly notion that books and classrooms are better. Downward spiral, I say.

Well said, Cam. I love books and school, too, but we need to have a similar focus on kids getting experiential learning outside. It's a great classroom out there as you know as well as anyone!


I spent so much time in the woods growing up - building forts, playing in creeks, cutting trails. It was some of the most memorable moments of my childhood and I think it helped build me into who I am today. You make some great points and we really should encourage kids to get outdoors more than they are today.
