William Wordsworth suggested that the natural world is “appareled with celestial
light” in childhood. Similarly, David Sobel believes there is a critical period in middle
childhood when children are biologically programmed to bond with the natural
world. If this bonding occurs, it sets the individual on a path of environmental values
and commitment. Parents and educators should take advantage of this openness
in childhood and provide frequent opportunities for children to adventurously be at
one in nature. In this talk, Sobel will present a bit of provocative research, a dash of theory, lots of stories, and a look at how the parent/child/nature relationship changes from early childhood to early adulthood.
