This week I am a Nature Rocks Ambassador!

This week I am working with the organization Nature Rocks (Facebook, Twitter) to provide tips about getting children outside and into nature. My voice will be coming through on their Facebook and Twitter pages, and I look forward to conversing with other parents about children and nature.

After checking out my posts this week, please take some time to look over the Nature Rocks website. They have lots of great ideas for getting out into nature with your kids, and a tool to search for activities in your area. I am proud to work with such an organization that shares my values concerning children and nature.
