A couple of months ago I was contacted by an editor from the Portland family magazine, Metro Parent. They were planning a new column for 2014 offering a parent’s perspective on various topics that would interest their readers (“Voices in Parenting”). They asked if I’d be interested in writing four columns about connecting children to nature. Um, yeah! And we’ll pay you, they said. Even better!
Other columns will come in the April, July, and October issues. I am excited for this opportunity to further encourage parents to take their kids outside, as well as read other parents’ columns.
