education, Life Lesson -

This post is contributed by Amanda Marie Clark. My husband and I met while working at an outdoor education center called Nature’s Classroom. This organization invites students and teachers to come live in a cabin in the woods for a week and learn about conservation, local wildlife, biology, and more.

We read in the news that species go extinct every year and learn from documentaries how species extinction is largely the result of human activities. As adults, we are familiar with the importance of biodiversity, how urbanization, poaching, and climate change have led to species decline, and the collective responsibility we have to help endangered animals, but how do we teach these important lessons to our kids? Children are naturally curious about their environment and are especially interested in animals. Has your child ever asked you why there are...
