Has your child enjoyed the woods lately?


























I happy to announce that the celebrated author will be on our mountain this week-end.

Author Richard Louv, who coined the term "nature-deficit disorder" and wrote the groundbreaking book Last Child in the Woods will be the keynote speaker for the Friends of South Cumberland's Trails & Trilliums Festival in April. "We are delighted to host internationally acclaimed environmentalist Richard Louv," said FSC president Ty Burnette. "His powerful message on the importance of connecting children to nature is central to the FSC mission and one we are proud to share." Following publication of Last Child in the Woods: Saving our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder, Richard Louv sparked a debate that began an international movement to reconnect kids and nature. He introduced the concept of nature-deficit disorder; influenced national policy; and helped inspire campaigns throughout North America. Louv will present a program for educators on April 10 and give an address on April 11.

Keynote Talk: "The Nature Rich Life" Richard Louv will present a keynote talk and book signing during Wine & Wildflowers, Saturday, April 11 at 6:00 in the Assembly Auditorium. Tickets for the wine and cheese reception and the talk are $20 a person, payable at the door or online. Following his talk, there will be a chance to purchase and get autographs in copies of the brand new 10th Anniversary Edition of Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder.
