Dr. Bob Henderson is an Outdoor Educator, Travel Guide, Speaker and Author of many great books on both Canadian Outdoor Recreation and Norwegian Friluftsliv. As well, Bob was a professor of Outdoor Education for 29 years at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada. In this episode, Bob joins us from the Oak Ridges Moraine in Ontario for a conversation on trends observed in outdoor activities, land use, education and more in the COVID era (thus far) as they relate to Ecological Consciousness. We also reflect on how these trends may influence the years to come. This is an exercise in reflection and renegotiation of our actions, education and methods of communication in this overarching era of the Anthropocene. What do you think of our observations? Agree? disagree? Did we leave something out? Is there something you'd like to ad?
