What's in a Name? Dissecting Ecoliteracy for Children
with Chris Filler, PhD

Chris will share stories from his time spent coordinating the nature preschool at Swan Lake and all the fun had with wee learners. Specifically, parents, grandparents and educators will appreciate as Chris unpacks the term ecoliteracy, quite literally the need to be literate about our earth and its many inhabitants. He will delve into our need for naming, categorizing and labeling as seen from the lens of a four year old.
