THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, GIVE THE GIFT OF THE UNIVERSE: Share it with your family, and with a child who has never seen the stars
Two-thirds of the U.S. population and more than one-half of the European population may have already lost the ability to see the Milky Way with the naked eye. When air pollution and urban domes of artificial light obscure our view of the night sky, our mental and physical health pay a price. Stars or no stars, natural darkness has value; our biological clocks count on it. In this blog post, Richard Louv shares the importance of seeing stars and why it is a great gift to give to ourselves and to our loved ones.
Richard Louv is our co-founder and best-selling author of the quintessential “Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder” and two follow-up books on nature connection, “The Nature Principle: Reconnecting with Life in a Virtual Age,” and “Vitamin N: The Essential Guide to a Nature-Rich Life.”
