Our Playground

Children who play with nature are more resistant to stress; have lower incidence of behavioral disorders, anxiety, and depression; and have a higher measure of self-worth. Early experiences with the natural world have been positively linked with the development of imagination and the sense of wonder and wonder is an important motivator for lifelong learning.

(Wells & Evans, 2003), (Cobb, 1977; Louv, 1991), (Wilson, 1997)
