Welcome to the Knowing Nature. A podcast exploring and engaging with the natural world.

To start we introduce ourselves and discuss experiences which influenced our attitudes towards nature. We also discuss the importance of adults demonstrating that it is fun and interesting to spend time in nature. Rounding off we share some suggestions for simple things to do with kids outdoors and the talk about the importance of imagination.

This episode’s discussion was framed by this paper:

Chawla, L. (2007). Childhood Experiences Associated with Care for the Natural World: A Theoretical Framework for Empirical Results.
