Cheryl Charles, co-founder of the Children and Nature Network
Join us for this very fun and informative show as both Kevin Hile, host of MiMenagerie, and I interview Cheryl Charles, the co-founder of the Children and Nature Network to discuss the impact nature has on our children.
The Children and Nature Network was founded by Cheryl and author Richard Louv after he wrote his book Last Child in the Woods, which discusses the impact that nature has on children. Mr. Louv coined the term Nature Deficit Disorder as a way of discussing the impact that our children are facing physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, as a result of being disconnected with nature.
Cheryl talks first with Kevin as discuss the Children and Nature Network and the impact of the nature and then Christine talks with Cheryl as well about some of their important findings. As we all know, nature allows us to be connected, grounded, and particularly for children, creative.
It’s a fascinating hour with a great guest and we know you won’t want to miss it! For more information about the Children and Nature Network, or about Cheryl and Richard’s work, please visit www.childrenandnature.org.
