Connecting Kids with Nature

Connect your kids with nature through outdoor exploration. Along the way, learn about the benefits of nature play.

Watch your child learn and develop before your very eyes. As kids explore and play in nature they gain confidence, build skills, and use their imagination. Experience the wonders of nature through your child's eyes. Research has demonstrated that time spent in nature fosters the healthy development of children. Outdoor play helps children manage stress and become resilient. Natural spaces stimulate children's limitless imaginations and foster creativity.

Children who connect with nature may be more inventive and better problem-solvers due to the hands-on learning that local nature provides. Adults learn about benefits of outdoor play, while kids experience it!

FREE. No registration required. A Lake County Nature Network Event.

Adult supervision required.

Who:
