My name is Debbie Greene.  I am Superintendent for the Joliet Park District in Joliet, Illinois.  I manage Pilcher Park Nature Center and run Little Sprouts Nature Based Early Learning Center.  My passion is PLAY in NATURE!  I love to play in nature and I love  getting children OUTSIDE.  I love to get them out playing in the leaves and dirt and running amuck just as I was allowed to do as a child.  My mentors on this and many subjects are:  Robert Michael Pyle, Richard Louv, Ken Finch and Louise Chawla.  I believe children need to play outside to be well balanced, caring, empathetic adults who love nature and work to save it.

I also love to TRAVEL!  When I travel it usually turns into Play in Nature also.  Either by location or by activity.  Not always but usually. So occasionally I will throw in non nature posts as well.  I love to read, I love to eat good food and I love to travel.
