Take your kids outside

These days, the primary means for children to spend time outside is during organized team sports. Kids spend little "free" time outdoors connecting with the natural world, yet, there are great benefits for doing just that! How do we convince kids to get outside and just play? See the links below to a variety of resources that will help you and your children get started on the road of reconnecting with nature.

"What if more and more parents, grandparents and kids around the country band together to create outdoor adventure clubs, family nature networks, family outdoor clubs, or green gyms? What if this approach becomes the norm in every community?" -Richard Louv, author and Chairman, Children & Nature Network
