Guest Blog: Seeking Wilderness Everywhere

Today, I’m sharing something different. Linked below is a powerful essay about where I work, volunteer, and recreate. It’s written by David Taylor of Center for Humans & Nature. I find this piece so moving that I want to share the writer’s words, experiences, and ponderings directly. I think you’ll feel inspired.

Here it is:

Look for these and other themes ~

  • the value children, juveniles, and adults find in nature
  • how repeat visits to wilderness can lead to deep ecological understanding
  • life skills developed through free exploration
  • the inherent value of wilderness, especially amidst urban development

What else did you encounter in David Taylor’s words? I always want to hear your thoughts.
