Event description

Description

Come get inspired to spend more time outdoors! A panel of Berkshire youth will share stories of their connection to nature followed by a presentation by author, Cindy Ross.


Panelists will have spent a weekend in a Trail Skill and Leadership Building Summit atop Mt. Greylock. Cindy Ross has written and lectured about raising children alternatively, via outdoor adventures and travel, for over the last twenty-five years. With her latest book, The World Is Our Classroom, Cindy shares her story, for all who are seeking inspiration, who love a good story, and who are looking for an unorthodox way to raise the happiest, healthiest, and brightest citizens they can.


"Cindy Ross is one of today's most eloquent and thoughtful writers on the connection between human and the natural world. Her new book, The World is Our Classroom shows how her family took that experience and used it to transform the way her children were raised and educated. With this book, she shows how all of us invite humility and wonder into our lives, not only through great adventures, but through everyday communion with the rest of nature.” — Richard Louv, author of Vitamin N, The Nature Principle, and Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder
