Kids in the Woods

Picture 2_kid fishingChildren today spend twice as much time indoors than their parents did at their age, a troubling statistic considering the many physical and mental health benefits of time outdoors. The US Forest Service More Kids in the Woods initiative seeks to address this growing disconnect between children and nature.

The “Kids in the Woods” section of the InterfaceSouth website has online resources about children and nature and the importance of outside playtime, including weblinks, handouts, articles and other publications.To view these resources and learn more about our efforts to encourage kids to get outdoors click here.
