Remember when kids played outdoors after school, on weekends and all day long during the summer? Playing ball in the vacant lot down the block, climbing trees, exploring nearby fields, hiking and fishing with friends...

Today's young people are housebound, plopped in front of a TV or computer, growing fatter and more lethargic, completely disconnected from their natural environment.

Deep concern about this worsening generational crisis has motivated three major nonprofit organizations in West Palm Beach to join forces to host a series of public events on one day next spring with Richard Louv, author of the groundbreaking book Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder.

The three events include a press conference with Mr. Louv at the Palm Beach Zoo with children asking some of the questions, a special luncheon at the Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach, and a combination book-signing and meet-and-greet that evening at the Zoo.
