"Encouragement and ideas concerning wholesome outdoor recreation"
“Teaching children about the natural world should be treated as one of the most important events in their lives.” – Thomas Berry
Shawna, the creator of natureforkids.net, shares the vision for her blog as a growing resource for those seeking ideas and encouragement for getting kids outside.
We wanted to know why she started blogging and what keeps her going, considering shes been online since 2008...this was her reply:
"Being outside everyday was a common thing for me as a child. A farm life kind of forces that on you with all the work and play that is provided. But when I became a mother of four little ones and living in a city with neighbors on all sides I realized my children were going to have a disconnection from nature unless I did something about it. I find such joy and amazement from recreating outside that I knew I didn't want my children to miss out on that. So we headed outside each day, whether it was for a short walk or a week long camping trip with rock climbing and mountain biking along the way. I knew that this disconnection from nature wasn't just a challenge my family was facing so I took this passion a step further and began blogging about our adventures outside, in hopes to educate and encourage others to head outdoors. My ultimate goal in this is to help each child find a hobby in the outdoors to call their own. This hobby turns into a love for their surroundings and in turn makes them better stewards of the land around them. Because we all know we take care of what we love."
