The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
….you’d better not go alone!
There’s all kinds of things there.
This is a lovely area in our local woods. The intention is to provide an area for children to build dens and shelters.
I took this photo with a tree in the middle to avoid photographing the people in the shelter!
When children come with their families they can move the wood, branches, logs and sticks around.
Fresh materials are provided regularly and existing shelters may be taken down. The local wardens manage the area and provide variety.
So often children don’t have opportunities to get first hand contact with nature and natural things.
Isn’t that a great idea?
