As a kid, did you have a place in the woods where you played? Away from adults where you built forts, climbed trees, got lost or burned stuff down? I know I did & wouldn't take it back for anything. Apparently, most kids today aren't experiencing "the woods" as their parents did. Supposedly, kids spend half the time as their parents did, or four hours/week. John & I will discuss how we spent our time outside growing up, the benefits and costs of outdoor play and how it might be impacting our perception of forestry today.
