If we want children to flourish, we need to give them time to connect with nature and love the Earth before we ask them to save it. -David Sobel


Background Information

I’ve lived a lot in my thirty-eight years—and in a lot of places too. From studying history in Vienna, to drinking tea in Boston, teaching golf in North Carolina, eating grits in Georgia, skiing with kids in Colorado, exploring New York City, ice-fishing in Minnesota, cheering on the Nebraska Cornhuskers and nearly calling California home. My nephew Johnny thinks I’m eighty-three!

My earliest memories are of summers filled with life outdoors, mostly with our grandparents in Wisconsin and Michigan. We chased frogs and swam after fish. We pulled weeds in the garden and picked berries. Our family bought sweet corn roadside and Mom organized husking competitions. I napped in the shade under fruit trees and wondered about becoming a farmer. We climbed trees, explored the woods after rainstorms and visited the garbage dump to watch bears.

Now, I live in Chicago where I mostly read—about where we’ve been, where we are and where we’re going. Without a doubt the seeds of a a “Green Revolution” have sprouted. Change is upon us, and the transformation of how our global village lives will take place faster and be more complete than the Industrial Revolution. We’ll harness current solar energy to power our lives, while learning to fulfill our needs without creating waste– like nature does every day. Done right, we’ll do it all while improving our quality of life both today and for future generations.

When I’m not reading (or running around outside), I visit school children. We talk about reading and writing, but mostly we talk about the wonders of nature.
