Research shows that amazing benefits flow from exploring nature
as a family. According to the Children and Nature Network,
connecting with nature not only provides physical and mental health
benefits, but it also nurtures family bonds and encourages kids to
respect and protect the earth.
However, a recent study by the Outdoor Foundation found that
children's interest and experience with the outdoors is on the
decline, and a Nature Conservancy poll found only 10 percent of
kids report daily outdoor activity.
