About the Author

Richard Louv is the author of nine books, including Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder and The Nature Principle: Reconnecting with life in a Virtual Age. His most recent book is Vitamin N: The Essential Guide to a Nature-Rich Life. His books have been translated into 20 languages and helped launch an international movement to connect children and their families to nature.

He is the recipient of the 2008 Audubon Medal. Past recipients include Rachel Carson, E.O. Wilson and Jimmy Carter. Among other awards, Louv received the 2007 Cox Award, Clemson University’s highest honor for “sustained achievement in public service.” Louv is also co-founder and chairman emeritus of the Children & Nature Network (www.childrenandnature.org), an organization helping build the movement to connect today’s children and future generations to the natural world. Louv coined the term Nature-Deficit Disorder® which has become the defining phrase of this important issue. He has written for The New York TimesThe Washington Post, the Times of LondonOrionOutsideand other newspapers and magazines, and was a columnist for The San Diego Union-Tribuneand Parents magazine.

He has served as an adviser to the Ford Foundation’s Leadership for a Changing World award program, and is a member of the Citistates Group, the editorial board of the journal, Ecopsychology. He is a member of the board of directors of ecoAmerica, a nonprofit focused on climate change. He appears often on national radio and television programs, including the Today Show, CBS Morning, Good Morning America, CBS Evening News, NBC Nightly News, and NPR’s Fresh Air. He travels frequently to address national and international gatherings. In 2010, he delivered the plenary keynote at the national conference of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and in 2012 was keynote speaker at the first White House Summit on Environmental Education.

Married to Kathy Frederick Louv, he is the father of two young men, Jason and Matthew. He would rather hike than write.
