Today’s children spend less time in nature than any generation in all of human history. April’s Let’s G.O.! (Get Outside) campaign is aimed at reversing that trend! Join in as people of all ages get outside to Play, Serve and Celebrate during the month of April. Let’s G.O.! (Get Outside) is the brainchild of Natural Leaders, the youth leadership section of the Children & Nature Network. In their words, “This is not just a call to action, it is a call for fun! Think of it as a party invitation, and the party location is all the green and living space around us. Community gardening, local hikes, river clean-ups, bird watching, fishing, biking, beach days, trail maintenance and habitat restoration – however and wherever you get outside in nature.”
So, join the party, join the fun! For a listing of outdoor activities in April, go to the Let’s G.O.! (Get Outside) website, type in your zip code, and you’ll see what’s happening near you. Have your own event to list? We want to hear about it! Follow this link to post your own event. Afterward, post photos and information about your event at the C&NN Connect.
