There is nothing quite like the excited squeal of a child experiencing something new and thrilling for the first time. On May 19 at our first ever Kids Fishing Event, the air at Lockerly was filled with many excited squeals and every single one of them made my heart sing.
I believe that every human deserves a chance to have a relationship with the natural world around them. However, in a technologically driven world that is covered in concrete, it isn't always convenient or easy for humans to have rewarding experiences in nature.
This is why places like Lockerly are so important. We exist to provide a safe space for humans to see, touch & smell the natural world around them and to hear the nuances of the symphony being played by Mother Nature; and the excited squeal of child is part of that symphony.
I leave you today with two of my favorite videos from the Kids Fishing Event.
