Thursday, July 7: Saving our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder

By Teresa Jordan

Salt Lake City, UT – Kids today have little hands-on contact with the natural world. Many learn in school about global warming and acid rain, but have never seen a bunny hop through the woods. Teresa Jordan talks to childhood development author Richard Louv about his new book "Last Child in the Woods: Saving our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder."
