Children today spend less time outdoors than any generation in human history. Kids in the U.S. spend on average six hours each day in front of the TV or computer and less than an hour outdoors.

Join us to spend 30 minutes in nature for 15 days in May.

Time in nature can reduce stress and symptoms of attention-deficit disorders, while boosting immunity, energy levels and creativity. Plus, children who spend time in nature are far more likely to protect it later in life.

The message is clear — kids need nature! And so do teachers.

The 30x15 Nature Challenge for K-12 Schools toolkit is full of tips, resources and activity ideas to help you engage your students and colleagues.

Toolkit coming soon.
