Many Stroll Woods Creek In Algonquin Conservation Community Day
The group thinks childhood has changed with kids building Internet sites instead of forts in the woods and talking on cell phones instead of tin cans and string. That was why 20 area nature and conservation groups lined the Woods Creek bike/pedestrian path to entice youngsters to get off their digital duffs in favor of the sort of unstructured time in nature that they think fosters creativity, emotional well-being, independent learning and problem solving.
In the pic: Friday was the first Algonquin Conservation Community day for two year-old (next week) Trevor Jimenez's and Mom Carrie. Trevor really liked LITH Fenwalk guide Barb Wilson's real coyote skull with fangs and everything.
