Eric Gyllenhaal replied to Juliet Robertson's discussion Why kids don't like learning outside
"Hi, Juliet (and TES friend), In my experience, some kids are just afraid of nature, at least at first. About a decade ago there were some papers about how fear and disgust may limit children's enjoyment of the outdoors: Bixler, R. D., &…"

children's built environments

Accessing 'nearby nature' often means improving the environments that children spend a majority of their time in....daycares, schools, neighborhood parks etc. Please help us share ideas, stories, and images of inspiring children's facilities.See More

"Great post! Here in the USA many of us collected Buckeyes as kids and used them in similar ways. (Buckeyes are a lot like Horse Chestnuts, but native to US.) Now that my boys are 12 and 14 and more interested in birds than nuts, I'm the only…"

Eric Gyllenhaal replied to Richard Louv's discussion House Parties for Children and Nature?
"Interesting idea, but how about make it a yard party, with the house as a backup if it rains or gets too cold (as April sometimes does in Chicago)? Also, something to add to the list of things to do: Adults can make plans for a No Child Left Inside…"

Bio
I'm a long-time museum person and nature nerd. I'm very interested in how and why kids develop passionate interests in arcane subjects like dinosaurs, rocks, and birds. In fact, I'm working on a website, blog, and book about that topic.

Good day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very important to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site. Could you please get back to me on my private email(a.pierre63@yahoo.com) if you dont mind ?
Have a nice day and God bless you,
pierre

Eric, just in case I never thanked you, I want to apologize for that and THANK you for your generosity in giving me so much information!

Eric, thank you! What a generous amount of info - thanks for this great start. What is your interest, and how can I be of help to you? I'd be happy to share my contact information with you - I don't know if comments are posted on the website for the general public to see. I guess I'll know the answer when I see where my own comment might get posted. Thanks again - very much. Ann
