Exploring, discovering, and playing in the outdoors has defined childhood for many generations.  As early childhood educators we can spark children’s curiosity, encourage exploration, and offer opportunities to inspire the next generation of caretakers of our planet.  This symposium is geared toward those who work with children ages 2-5.
