“For eons, human beings spent most of their formative years in nature. But within the space of a few decades, the way children understand and experience nature has changed radically. Healing the broken bond between our young and nature is in everyone’s self interest, not only because aesthetic or justice demand it, but also because our mental, physical and spiritual health depend upon it.”
