Take Action: Help Kids and Families Get Healthy Outdoors
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that children engage in 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day. Research shows that youth who have nearby access to parks and nature are more likely to get outdoors and be physical fit than those living in park poor communities.
Time in nature has also been shown to reduce stress and anxiety and improve overall mental health. Regardless of where kids live, every single one of them deserves the chance to explore and enjoy nature.
