The Children & Nature Network Gets Kids Outdoors

Naturepedic’s focus is on health, wellness and vitality. The Children & Nature Network (C&NN) also focuses on these areas, but in different ways. They work to get kids exploring, playing  outdoors and reconnecting with nature.

Co-founded by Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder and The Nature Principle: Reconnecting with Life in a Virtual Age, C&NN has built an extensive global network of people and organizations working to get kids excited about nature. Recognizing that children simply don’t interact with the great outdoors as much as in the past, C&NN provides resources and inspiration for parents, educators and concerned citizens globally to help make nature a part of the everyday lives of children.

The C&NN website is a massive repository of information and resources serving a wide variety of needs. With excellent materials for individuals, the site also provides resources for those interested in creating grassroots advocacy groups. The site even has a section for pediatrician’s wishing to promote the mental and physical health benefits of outdoor activity.

The Children & Nature Network is not affiliated with Naturepedic. It’s just a great organization doing great things.
