Are you interested in children, play, and nature? If so, you might consider attending some of the events organized as the Northwest Children’s Nature Play Week, coming up real soon: Sept. 11-15. This is all organized by The Intertwine, Metro, and April Gutierrez of PNW Tax Service (as a concerned mom seeing the trend for less play and less time in nature for her kids, she brought the British film Project Wild Thing to Portland for a screening last year). The schedule is below, with links to more information and/or registration information.
