Reconnecting with Nature
"In today's world of overpopulation and high consumption, it is essential that we make an effort to keep people in touch with the earth: its natural rhythms, the changing seasons, its beauty and mystery."
- Paul E. Knoop, Jr.

The rainy weather held off for the third Sharing Nature with Children event over July 4th weekend. A group of friends and parents met at the 300-acre Bucktoe Creek Preserve for a morning nature activity with TLC. Saturdays activity focused on strengthening memorization of natural objects such as, types of rocks, plants and seeds.
|Thirty seconds to memorize ten objects - Go!|
We also got a bit distracted by the energetic group of frogs in the pond we were working next to :)
