Over the past decades we have seen that today in America people spend more time indoors than ever before. So many screens compete for our attention that we are loosing a connection with nature and the outdoors. Obviously, there are many consequences of this new lifestyle. Yet one most don't think about is the disappearance of a "nature" vocabulary from the cultural conversation. Research shows our conversations reflect an actual distancing from nature. Yes, studies have been done that show we are using nature terms less and expressing ourselves less as it relates to nature. Read more about this study. How can we stop the screen time domination? Put down your screen and go outside. Make it a point to take your children outside and show them the wonder that nature has to offer.  At Swift Nature Camp we do it everyday. It could be a simple sunset or a frog hopping off a lily-pad either way it's about seeing the little things and enjoying them.
