“Take a Child Outside Week” August 19, 2009

Take a Child Outside Week

September 24—September 30, 2009

Take A Child Outside Week is a program designed to help break down obstacles that keep children from discovering the natural world. By arming parents, teachers and other caregivers with resources on outdoor activities, our goal is to help children across the country develop a better understanding and appreciation of the environment in which they live, and a burgeoning enthusiasm for its exploration.

Going outside:

  • connects children to the natural world
  • helps kids focus in school
  • reduces chances of obesity

So take a child outside!

On this site you can:

Come, be a part of this national movement!
