Connecting with nature in the city

People will occasionally tell me that they can’t connect with nature because they live in the city.  They view nature as something far away that they will have to travel to explore.

They couldn’t be more wrong.

My little girl is three months old and I’ve noticed that when I take her outside, she calms down and listens to the birds, enjoying the world around her.  She’s connecting with nature in our own backyard.

If you want to go a little further afield, visit a park and have a picnic, let your kids go biking or even float down whatever body of water is available.

There are always opportunities for connecting with nature close to home.

Why not share your favourites in the comments and I will try to remember to do a post about everything that you come up with.
