Nature is a part of our daily lives affecting us in many beneficial ways — and at times it can act like a beast. As we will continue this relationship with nature throughout our lives, it is important to learn how it works. The best way to have an environmentally conscious society is to teach our children about the natural world. Check out Cromwell Valley Park to teach your toddler about nature.
