Headquarters of The Nature Heroes! "Every child should have mud pies. They should have grasshoppers, water bugs, tadpoles, frogs, and mud turtles. They should have elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, and chestnuts. They should have trees to climb and brooks to wade. They should have water lilies. They should have woodchucks, bats, bees, and butterflies. They should have hayfields, pine-cones, rocks to roll, and sand. They should have snakes. They should have huckleberries. They should have hornets, and any child who is missing these are missing the best learning." "One has that magical capacity to see the land as an animal does; to experience the sky from the perspective of a flower or a bee; to know a hundred different smells of mud and listen consciously to the soughing of the trees." We believe that regular connections with the natural world encourage children to develop: * Respect for local cultures and climates and themselves as a part of nature. * Feelings of unity, peace, and well-being as global citizens. We believe it is essential for children to: * Be respected as competent, powerful learners and risk- takers who have a voice in what they create and learn through nature. * Be supported in developing life skills through holistic nature-based learning. We believe it is vital for families to: * Understand the value of children's daily connections with nature. * Support children's appropriate risk-taking and exploration in nature * Enjoy regular experiences in the natural world with their children. We believe it is crucial for educators to: * Allow enough time each day for children to explore freely in nature-based spaces. * Support children's appropriate risk-taking and adventurous play in nature. * Provide children with opportunities for silence and contemplation in natural settings. * Encourage children's development of a sense of wonder and a sense of environmental stewardship.
