What you notice in nature and how you listen, tell a story about your point of view, or your relationship with nature. Wild literacy begins by looking into the lens from which you read nature.
We need to shift away from a detached, exploitive relationship with nature toward one that is close, protective, and regenerative. -Dr. Suzanne Simard

A Participatory Approach
Reading Nature is part of a movement to restore a balanced approach to nature. An approach where humans belong in nature not as a dominating force, nor as passive observers but as active participants in a mutual partnership. This is not a new approach, indigenous cultures worldwide value reciprocal partnerships with nature.
