Reflecting on the successes of the prior year is always a great way to start the new one. Last year saw continued progress in the movement to reconnect children with nature – here, nationally and internationally. We hope you will read full details in our 2013 Annual Report, but local highlights include the addition of helpful resources for families and educators with the launch of Green Umbrella’s Meet Me Outdoors website and our own School Program Finder. Nationally, the expansion of the Children & Nature Network to C&NN Worldwide was a milestone, and the American Public Health Association’s release of a policy statement recommending that health professionals promote spending time in nature was an indicator of how successful the movement has been in influencing policy. Please join us in making 2014 a year of continued success by sharing our message with others wherever you live, learn, work and play.
