Children & Nature


"Outdoor activity and access to nature promotes the health, development and well-being of children and youth and forms the foundation for responsible environmental behavior as children grow up."
- from the Minnesota Children & Nature Connection

“Giving children the chance to play outside has myriad benefits, from physical activity to creativity, emotional health, social connectedness, and cognitive development, including the specific executive function skills that are so critical to a happy, healthy childhood and a fulfilling life.”
- from Thriving through Nature: Fostering Children’s Executive Function Skills, Children & Nature Network
