Richard Louv and Friends on Reimagining Nature Literacy

Many of us are more familiar with what’s on TV than with what’s crawling, growing, and flying just beyond our windows. In this conversation, we discuss “nature deficit disorder”—a phrase coined by author and panelist Richard Louv—and the ways we might reconnect ourselves and our kids with wonder and adventure in the natural world.

This is a recording of a live web event (on June 16, 2011), in which Richard Louv, Camilla Rockwell, and David Sobel discuss Reimagining Nature Literacy.
