The Children in Nature Collaborative of Austin presents the
Sixth Annual Children in Nature Awards Gala
CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
In September of 2013, Westcave Preserve will host the sixth annual Celebration of Children in Nature Awards Gala. The centerpiece of this program is the celebration of extraordinary work in the Central Texas Community to inspire joy and wonder by getting our children out into nature. We will recognize four individuals or organizations who demonstrate the very best in connecting kids to the natural world.
We are seeking the nominations of children, adults, organizations or groups of individuals who are doing exciting, innovative, successful work to offer solutions to the problem of "nature deficit disorder" - a term coined by bestselling author Richard Louv in his book Last Child in the Woods: Saving Your Children from Nature Deficit Disorder. Award categories include: E. Lee Walker Award for Community Collaboration, John C. Watson Award for Vision, John F. Arhns Award for Environmental Education and the Westcave Preserve Award for Enduring Dedication. Click here for a list of previous award winners.
