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.
