Tom Brown says, “Exciting and fulfilling as our lives may be, most of us are cut off from our natural surroundings. We live in heated houses, drive automobiles on asphalt highways…we listen to a barrage of unnatural sounds…we live by the clock. We have lost our connection with the earth.”
Those of us who live in Los Alamos are fortunate to live in a place where nature is at our doorstep- the mountains behind, the canyons below, the flowing river. However, we are not immune to being cut off from our natural surroundings by the requirements of daily life.
Studies have shown that children benefit from outdoor education and playing in nature. Author Richard Louv in his book Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder shows how important being outdoors is to children’s physical, psychological and creative wellbeing. He shows that in schools with outdoor classrooms, kids tend to do better in everything from social studies to standardized testing.
