A Collaborative Nature-Based Childhood Conference
Co-sponsored by NH Children in Nature Coalition
Saturday September 14, 2013
Live and Learn Early LearningCenter – Lee, NH
Keynote Speaker – Jeannine Fitzgerald
Endnote Speaker – Tracy Kane
Let’s explore the many ways we can connect children, youth and families with nature right in our own communities, through nature play and learning. It could be in backyards, early childhood centers, conservation lands, schoolyards, city parks or neighborhoods. Get a pediatrician’s perspective on nature play for kids, learn new games and challenges to engage children with nature, find out about the most up-to-date research on the benefits of nature, or explore public lands in New Hampshire’s big backyard. Those are just some of the workshops. Plus enjoy a home-cooked lunch outdoors under the big tent.
