LECTURE: Parenting With Nature in Mind, April 9

I just found out about this lecture/workshop at Lewis & Clark College on April 9th, and hope to attend:

Parenting With Nature in Mind
Wednesday, April 9 from 5-7pm
Lewis & Clark Graduate Campus, South Chapel
$10 admission, register here

Join Thomas Doherty, director of the Ecopsychology program at Lewis & Clark, for a public dialogue on the importance of nature in child development and ways families can cope with environmental issues. Through presentation of research findings, guided discussion and dialogue, the group will explore how parents can foster their and their children’s environmental identities, in a way that fits with their culture, diversity and other values. Thomas will also describe ways to create opportunities for children to have safe, transcendent experiences in the outdoors that promote an ecological sense of self and interdependence with the web of life.
