Monday thought of the week: special places

A thought:

For special places to work their magic on kids, they need to be able to do some clamber and damage. They need to be free to climb trees, muck about, catch things, and get wet – above all, to leave the trail.

– naturalist and writer Robert Michael Pyle, quoted in “Keeping Childhood Wild: David Sobel on Mother Nature’s Child,” Orion Magazine (July 2012)
