Being outdoors and building a grounded connection to the natural world is now more important than ever. In nature, you and your children can find a space for infinite creativity where play and learning blend seamlessly. Children can stay active and healthy while growing and exploring their emotional and physical responses to the world around them, and developing a deeper relationship to the natural environment.
