Don Torino, a friend of this blog, has a nifty column — about the importance of getting young folks interested in nature — on the wildnewjersey.tv blog.
Equally cool, Don’s post features photos of the Meadowlands by Marco Van Brabant, another friend of this blog.
Writes Don, “Over time, many factors have allowed kids to become separated from nature. Urban sprawl has destroyed many local natural places where kids used to play.
“Overprotection and a disconnection from nature by parents has caused kids to fear everything from a bird to a bee. We need to find new ways to help bring kids back from the brink of losing their love of nature for good.”
