Growing Up Wild

Nature-based preschools are re-focusing the lens on early childhood education. And the third annual Nature Preschool conference, which addresses the unique benefits and challenges of nature-based curriculum in early childhood programs, is this weekend at Irvine Nature Center.

Local resident Mary Hardcastle, co-founder of the Greater Baltimore Children and Nature Collaborative, will be the keynote speaker, and in this week’s installment of The Nature of Things, she talks with Brooks Paternotte about getting city kids outside.
