This book is filled wth great ideas on giving children memorable experiences in Nature. I myself am a nature docent and I know from experience that if you try to lecture to children out in nature you just have a lot of kids not listening. If you give them an experience you will give them something that they will always refer back to for the rest of their life. I highly recommend the methods used in this book.

This is an oldie but goodie. I used it for many years with Scout groups and am now coming back to it as I teach students preparing to enter the teaching profession. We all have a need to renew our connections to the natural world and to learn how to appreciate it. Cornell has 'tried and true' methods for awakening the conservationist in all of us.
