Connect to Nature

Thank you for this podcast! I’m a middle school science teacher working to connect kids to nature in urban & suburban locations by visiting our local parks. This is so important.

A joy to hear

So proud of my local museum for putting out this podcast. Dr. E.O. Wilson is a treasure! Looking forward to more episodes. Really miss visiting the museum since the pandemic, so this podcast has helped fill that gap.
