“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” -John Muir
As part of the National Environmental Education Week Challenge, I decided to take Joshua for a walk around the farm. I believe that if you expose a child to the environment and teach him to love nature, he will grow up to protect it.
We walked with my mom through the apple orchard, under the covered bridge and by the pond.
At the pond we saw geese, a duck, three turtles and lots of frogs.
We saw daffodils in bloom, picked one and smelled it.
The peach trees were blossoming, and we were greeted by Dukie.
Don’t forget, there’s still time to join the National Environmental Education Week Challenge! Email your post or leave a comment by April 19th!
