Event Description

Woodcock Nature Center of Ridgefield and Wilton will be sponsoring two talks in Newtown on Friday, April 5th by Audubon Medal Winner Richard Louv, best selling author of Last Child in the Woods and The Nature Principle.

Nature center director, Henryk Teraszkiewicz states, “As the father of a 7 and 9 year old in Newtown and the head of a nature center whose mission is to get children and families outside, I was concerned at the potential reactionary effects that the Dec. 14th tragedy could have in our area. Children are already experiencing a disconnect from nature, something Louv has termed Nature Deficit Disorder, but now they need that outdoor exposure more than ever.”

In answer to these concerns, Louv has created a talk addressing the healing power of nature, “Peace and the Natural World: The Restorative Power of Nature Where We Live, Work, Learn and Play.”

There will be one talk at 1:30 at the Newtown Meeting House (31 Main St  Newtown, CT 06470, by the flagpole) and the second talk will be at 6:30 pm at the Fraser Woods School (173 S Main St, Newtown, CT 06470) . Richard Louv will also be signing books at the conclusion of both talks. Admission is free but we ask that you let us know you’re coming.

To let us know that you are coming, please email the center at
