The children and nature movement needs you!
October 30, 2018| Children & Nature Network |
Many of us remember our special childhood place in nature. Perhaps it was under a tree we loved, on a trail in the woods, in a field nearby, or at the edge of a pond where our spirits grew strong. That special place still exists in our hearts today.
Mounting scientific evidence and common sense tells us that kids need nature for their emotional, physical and spiritual health. They need it for their cognitive development, for their ability to learn and create, and for their ability to protect the future of nature itself. As our world changes rapidly, connecting children to nature is more important than ever.
Sadly, too many of today’s children never experience the sense of wonder and belonging that we discovered in the natural world.
We believe that every child deserves a positive connection to nature. Every child, from every neighborhood, culture, economic background and set of abilities.
If you share that conviction, we invite you to join us as a member of the nonprofit Children & Nature Network, which is building an international movement to connect children, families and communities to nature. By joining, you’ll help improve the lives of countless children, and assure that they, too, carry nature in their hearts, far into the future.
Thanks for your support, your leadership, and for all you do on behalf of children and nature.
