All Kids Need Nature

Can you help?

The last time you felt down or hurt, what did you do to help brighten your world?

Chances are one of those things involved getting outside. Maybe it was taking a walk in the park or going for a run. Maybe it was sitting under a tree. Perhaps it was working in the garden.

For kids living in highly developed, densely populated neighborhoods, there are far fewer opportunities to connect with nature. Yet the stressors they face everyday -- poverty, noise, relocation, hunger and violence – are as challenging as they are prevalent.

These kids need the healing power of the outdoors. The good thing is you can help.
