As an ecologist I love to inspire children about the natural world. Nature fascinates me.
I remember reading about a dad who was walking with his daughter in the wood. She was just ambling along not really taking much note of anything. But then he started to show her all the conkers on the ground; they picked one up and felt it’s lovely smoothness, admired it wonderful rich brown colour. By the time they got home the little girl’s pockets were bulging with conkers. If her dad hadn’t pointed them out to the little girl she may never have noticed them.
As parents, educators or just friends of children we need to make time to help children become aware of the wonderful world around them.
Based in the West of Ireland I am happy to visit and work with primary schools though the Heritage in Schools Scheme.
