Wonder Woods is the ideal environment for children to deeply connect with the natural world. We start by helping children feel comfortable in wild spaces, and then supporting them as they explore their own interests.
Passion is lifted from the earth itself by the muddy hands of the young; it travels along grass-stained sleeves to the heart. If we are going to save environmentalism and the environment, we must also save an endangered indicator species: the child in nature.
