Minimalist Moms

24-05-2023 • 26 mins

Joining me today is a guest who truly embodies the spirit of being an animal adventurer, Susie Spikol. Susie is a naturalist, educator, and author of the captivating book, "The Animal Adventurer's Guide."

If you're an animal lover who enjoys following animal tracks and chasing fireflies, then this episode is for you. Susie will discuss the importance of connecting kids to nature in the digital age, her love for animals with "bad reputations," and share tips for nighttime animal observation using a flashlight.

With over 30 years of experience as a naturalist and educator, Susie knows the activities that kids and families love. This episode is all about practicality. With Susie's invaluable reminders, we can rediscover the enchantment of the world right outside our doorstep.

“If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, let us allow them to love the earth before we ask them to save it.” -David Sobel
