Nature Education

WHY NATURE EDUCATION?

Research shows that children are spending hours on electronic devices and less and less time outdoors, with detrimental effects to their health. Getting kids outdoors and learning about the natural world has been shown to reduce health risks such as obesity, diabetes, asthma, and ADHD, while fostering the next generation of environmental stewards. So get outdoors as a family and explore the natural world!
