We're told to listen to our mothers, so it makes sense that we might turn to them for advice on experiencing the environment.
In a number of posts, I have focused on providing information to parents, and many of those tips have come from Debi Huang, the mom at Go Explore Nature. As part of her 31 Days of Backyard Nature Fun, she shared a link to a site called OutsideMom.com, which is run by another nature mom.
OutsideMom.com contains recipes, crafts, and tips for getting outside with little kids. I really like the recent entry about helping kids track animals in the snow.
Web sites like this add support to the idea that moms really do have all the answers.
