Take kids into #nature early on so they’ll grow up with an appreciation for being outside. More tips from @eartheasy

We are lucky enough to have 1200 acres of “savanna” behind our house. Just this past Wednesday my 4-1/2 year old son and I (third annual trip) walked around the small pond near our yard and cleaned up the winters’ trash that had blown in. He was the one that was asking to go this year (I had to push back for a few days to let the area dry out from the melted snow). He was genuinely excited to pick up the bags, styrofoam, pop bottles, etc. And you never know what exciting treasure you’ll find. Last year we found a spotted turtle shell that had been vacated and he plays with that to this day. While doing all this we explored the natural world right outside our back door. And, yes, GO CAMPING!
