Last Child in the Woods
The recipient of the 2008 Audubon Medal, Richard Louv identified a phenomenon we all knew existed but couldn’t quite articulate: nature-deficit disorder. Since its initial publication, his book Last Child in the Woods has created a national conversation about the disconnection between children and nature, and his message has galvanized an international movement. Now, three years later, we have reached a tipping point, with the book inspiring Leave No Child Inside initiatives throughout the country.
The Friends of Rose Creek is committed to maintaining nature in our neighborhood so our children have a place to experience the wonder of Great Blue Heron’s fishing or a Mullet spawning.
Richard will be at Point Loma Nazarene College on February 24. For details click here.
