S6E80: Spring Nature Study with Jeannette Tulis

They notice for themselves, and the teacher gives a name and other information as it is asked for… In this way they lay up that store of “common information”… and what is more important, they learn to know and delight in natural objects as in the familiar faces of friends.

Let them once get in touch with Nature, and a habit is formed which will be a source of delight through life. We were all meant to be naturalists, each in his degree, and it is inexcusable to live in a world so full of the marvels of plant and animal life and to care for none of these things.

    I loved this podcast episode! Lots of wonderful things were mentioned including an artist who gave tutorials the guest mentioned but I couldn’t spell it well enough to be successful in searching for it.

    Would you please spell the name of the artist for me? Thank you!!!
