Reading Our Landscapes, with Liam Heneghan

“Having those stories that encourage children’s awe [and] curiosity about the world around them, that they know they are having an experience of nature in the city … is going to be pretty important.” ~ Liam Heneghan

How do the stories we read as children inform our curiosity about our environment? How do we “read” our landscapes wherever we are, and no matter our age? Choose to be Curious intern Lydia Perry leads this rich conversation with environmental scientist Liam Heneghan.

Has Liam whet your appetite for more about Tom Robinson, as he did mine? Really wonderful obituary in The Guardian, here. I picked up Listening to the Wind from the good folks at Milkweed.
