“We are all meant to be naturalists, each in his own degree, and it is inexcusable to live in a world so full of the marvels of plant and animal life and to care for none of these things.”
I completely agree with this! 100%.
We live in a time of tablets, phones, snap chat, and video games. Virtual reality is becoming our children’s realities! Getting your children out in the open fresh air to learn about nature is a thing of the past.
But… let’s not keep it in the past. Let’s nourish their minds, and make nature study a thing of the present and the future! If we instill our children with a love for nature and the world around them, that will rub off onto their kids… and their grandkids. And then a chain reaction!
I’m ready to raise some naturalists! How about you?
