Mission

Our mission here at Naturekids is to restore the creative interaction between a child and the natural world.  In his book, The Necessity of Experience, Psychology professor Edward Reed advocated for what he called the "Primary Experience" in which children see, feel, taste, hear, and smell our environment for themselves. 

Unfortunately, children today are increasingly isolated in a technological cocoon of our own making.  Restoring regular primary experiences with the natural world is critical in fostering a growing child's creativity and self-confidence.  We want every child to experience the innate sense of wonder will result from going outdoors and getting hooked on Nature!
