Nature Play at Home Book Launch Event
Mar 31, 2019 04:26PM
A longtime Arlington resident and expert on outdoor learning, Striniste has designed natural playscapes throughout the mid-Atlantic and presented at conferences and educator trainings around the country. Refreshments will be provided during social time before and after the presentation during which Striniste will discuss the importance of children experiencing time in nature, address the benefits of natural playspaces and provide how-tos for homeowners and educators.
Striniste notes, “Time in nature is important. It is rare for children today to have the freedom to roam and the abundant, unstructured time outdoors that past generations had. Places where children spend their time need to become wilder.”
Acclaimed Last Child in the Woods author Richard Louv calls Striniste’s book “a magnificent resource for transforming backyards into stimulating environments which enhance children’s creativity, learning and fun” and Library Journal highly recommends the “eye-catching volume.”
Tickets: $35 with a signed copy of the book or $25 without. Proceeds benefit NoVA Outside’s work to connect children to nature. For information and tickets, visit bit.ly/NaturePlayAtHomeLaunch.
