Parks and Recreation
Nature play promotes daily contact with our natural environment and outdoor space. Diminishing habitats, parental safety concerns, increasing access to technology and even over-structured lifestyles have contributed to a growing lack of contact with nature for many children.
The aim of nature play is to create a greater appreciation for, and awareness of, the natural environment.
For more ways to engage kids in nature play, please visit the Open Space and Mountain Parks
