How to Raise a Wild Child
THE ART AND SCIENCE OF FALLING IN LOVE WITH NATURE
ISE is very proud to present Scott Sampson, the Denver-based dinosaur paleontologist, television-show host, science communicator and passionate advocate for connecting people with nature.
Scott's new book, available at the Colorado Parks and Wildlife booth, is How to Raise a Wild Child. This guide is aimed at helping parents, teachers and others foster a deep connection with nature in children. Sampson also wrote Dinosaur Odyssey: Fossil Threads in the Web of Life .
Scott currently serves as vice president of research and collections and chief curator at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, where much of his work focuses on rethinking 21st-Century cities as places where people and nature thrive.
He's perhaps best known as “Dr. Scott,” host and science advisor of the Emmy-nominated PBS KIDS series Dinosaur Train, produced by the Jim Henson Company.
Scott has served as the on-air host and science advisor for the four-part Discovery Channel series Dinosaur Planet, and frequently appears on national television and radio, and in newspapers and magazines, including Time Magazine, and National Geographic. He has been featured in more than a dozen documentaries, including Nova, Paleoworld, and Nature Kids.
