Breaking the Barriers: Linking Children and Nature. Report of the Forum (October 1988).
Roger Tory Peterson Inst. of Natural History, Inc., Jamestown, NY.
The Roger Tory Peterson Institute is concerned with creating experiences in which children face the mysteries and wonders of the natural world and understand their connection with nature. The purpose of the forum was to support the growth of these experiences and the people who create them. The forum covered three broad topics: (1) visions for the relationship between children and nature; (2) barriers to attaining those visions; and (3) specific strategies for overcoming the barriers. This document contains summaries of the three sessions; proposals for change; creative ideas culled from small group sessions; and lists of officers, trustees, staff, speakers, committee members, and participants.
