Nature Play at Home: Creating Outdoor Spaces That Connect Children with the Natural World
Talk & Book-signing

Sunday, May 5, 1-2pm

Presenter: Nancy Striniste, Author

Included with Admission

Access to technology has created a generation of children who are more plugged in than ever before-often with negative consequences. Unrestricted outdoor play reduces stress, improves health, and enhances creativity, learning, and attention span. In Nature Play at Home, Nancy Striniste gives you the tools you need to make outdoor adventures possible in your yard, school, and neighborhood. With hundreds of inspiring ideas and 12 illustrated, step-by-step projects, this hardworking book details
how to create playspaces that use natural materials-like logs, boulders, sand, water, and plants of all kinds. Projects include hillside slides, seating circles, sand pits, and more.

"A magnificent resource for transforming backyards into stimulating environments which enhance children's creativity, learning, and fun." -Richard Louv, author of "Last Child in the Woods", "The Nature Principle", and "Vitamin N".

"A remarkable treasure trove of ideas, with close-ups of nature play elements that real children want to play on. What a gift to children, parents, and designers." -David Sobel, author of "Place-Based Education", "Childhood and Nature", "Beyond Ecophobia", and "Wild Play"
