Getting Kids Outdoors in Lafayette: A Primer for Parents and Teachers
Getting Kids Outdoors in Lafayette: a Primer for Parents and Teachers
Wed. April 26, 6 - 8:30 p.m.
According to Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder, a reconnection to the natural world is fundamental to human health, well-being, spirit, and survival. This program will provide Lafayette parents with lots of ideas for fun and educational activities to share with kids, and resources to help discover and appreciate Lafayette’s open spaces. Information and activities will be focused mostly for parents and teachers of elementary school age children, but will provide resources for engaging older kids and youth including natural resource careers and local outdoor programs for youth.
Meet naturalist Martin Ogle at Lafayette Public Library, 775 W. Baseline Rd. As Lafayette Library’s 2017 “community read,” Louv’s book, Last Child in the Woods, will be showcased as a resource.
This program is co-sponsored by Lafayette Open Space, the Parent Engagement Network and Lafayette Public Library For more information, contact Martin Ogle at Martin@EntrepreneurialEarth.com or 720-612-0506.
