Take Me Outside Day

Thursday, October 25 is Take Me Outside Day.  Inspired by Richard Louv’s work on nature deficit disorder, this national celebration reminds us of the restorative power of nature on our kids.

Colin and his Take Me Outside crew have designed t-shirts which inspire me.  I’ve ordered one for me and my kids.  Reconnecting our children with nature is not the educational system’s responsibility but we can all play a part.

It’s colder here than in many parts of the country but I’m scheduling an extra hour of forest time tomorrow.  Hope to see you there! Take the TMO challenge!
