We need nature. Without contact with nature, we may lose the best of what life can give us. That’s sounds serious, but it’s true. Richard Louv says in best in his book, “The Nature Principle: Reconnecting with Life in a Virtual Age.” He says that whole family and whole communities can become happier, healthier, and smarter through more contact with nature. With all our technology and man made comforts, many of us find it difficult to get out and enjoy a simple walk in the woods or a stroll on a warm sandy beach. How many of us have an opportunity to venture into unspoiled nature preserves where our senses get awakened to natures’ wonders. Richard Louv’s research found how much we need contact with nature.

Here are Richard Louv’s  reasons why adults and children need contact with nature.

The more high-tech our lives become, the more nature we need.


        Humans are hard-wired to love and need exposure to the natural world.

        We suffer when we withdraw from nature.

        Nature brings our senses alive.


        Nature heals.
