Understanding nature

My wife and son went to Cathedral grove today. It’s one of the only first growth forests left in BC, and it is amazing. The trees here are spectacular! What I realized when I saw the photos my wife sent me, you cannot understand nature without standing in (literally) her most majestic works.

I know that for many children who live in highly urban environments, this kind of opportunity is very rare. What can we do to ensure that more children get a chance to actually experience nature in its grandure first hand. Personally, I think that all children should stand inside a tree like this, if only so they can recognize how amazing forests are.

    I completely agree with you, it would be so amazing if more children had opportunities to view places like this one. It is terrible that some children do not have the opportunity to see nature at its most beautiful, I think all children should get a chance to see places like cathedral grove. It would be great if more schools offered field trips that focused on showing kids untouched nature. If more children had a chance to experience nature first hand then they would have a greater appreciation for it, maybe. I’m kind of a nature freak so I think that everyone should travel somewhere that they have never been before, just to see more of what’s out there.
