Tips for Getting Children Outside

grosbeakToday’s children don’t get outside and experience nature and wild animals as much as previous generations.  Giving your children a daily "Green Hour" — a bit of time for unstructured interaction with the natural world —  reverses the nature-child disconnect. 
Here are some websites you can visit for fun ideas on how to keep your children busy outside:

1.  The Backyard Bird Count:  www.birdsource.org/gbbc
2.  Frog Watch USA:  www.nwf.org/frogwatchusa
3.  Project Budburst:  www.windows.ucar.edu/citizen_science/budburst
4.  Create a Monarch Waystation:  www.monarchwatch.org/waystations
5.  Create a Wildlife Backyard:  www.nwf.org/backyard
rabbit6.  Great American Backyard Campout:  www.backyardcampout.org
7.  Project FeederWatch:  www.birds.cornell.edu/pfw
8.  Audubon's Christmas Bird Count:  www.audubon.org/bird/cbc
