Go Wild! Connecting Kids with Nature


Saturday, March 28, 2015, 2:00pm


Harvard Museum of Natural History, 26 Oxford Street

Special event and book signing with Scott Sampson, Vice President of Research and Collections and Chief Curator Denver Museum of Nature & Science

Connecting people, especially children, with nature is crucial to their health and the health of places they call home. In the age of Google and iPhones, however, finding a balance between technology and the natural world is increasingly difficult. In this interactive presentation, Scott Sampson—host of the hit PBS KIDS television series, Dinosaur Train—will tap into the many secrets revealed in his new book, How to Raise a Wild Child, to offer inspirational advice. Dr. Scott will also share engaging activities aimed at hooking kids on nature and helping grown-ups become highly successful nature mentors. It’s time to get outside and go wild!

Free event parking available at the 52 Oxford Street Garage.

Regular museum admission rates apply.
