Remember when you was a kid and you would spend all day playing outside? Well, the USDA Forest Service and Ad Council are working to encourage 8-12 year olds and their parents to switch off the computers and TV’s and reconnect with nature.
The discover the forest web site, has resources for parents who want to learn more about how to help their children experience nature on their terms. Plus there is an interactive element, The Discover the Forest sweepstakes, where your family can win $1000 worth of outdoor gear, by submitting a photo or piece of artwork that depicts your childs nature experience.
