The Littlest Green Guides

Thanks to all the Green Guides who made it a point to spend part of their weekend with the kids. Special thanks to Serge, Lesley, Ann , Kathleen and Maureen  for making this event possible.

As Green Guides and lovers of books, we never know what little spark in the life of a child ignites a passion for the natural world and reading that brings them joy and pleasure for a lifetime. But we do know for sure that if we do not stop from time to time to share with them what we may take for granted, the spark will not survive.  

 Best regards,
