What we’re reading this week:
- The importance of getting kids – all kids – out into nature. A subject near and dear to our hearts.
- Elizabeth Kolbert is back with a new book, tackling the idea of what we can do to have a “good Anthropocene.” Looking forward to reading this one!
- How do birds stay warm in winter? Among other strategies, chickadees eat eat eat eat eat – more than 35% of their body weight every day! Keep those feeders full!
