According to the National Environmental Education Foundation, being active in nature makes children healthier:

• Exposure to nature can reduce stress levels by as much as 28% in children
• Time spent outdoors is predictive of higher physical activity in children
• Children living within 2/3 mile of a park with a playground can be 5 times more likely to have a healthy weight
• Outdoor exercise improves mental & physical well-being more so than indoor activity
• Even a 20 minute walk in nature can help children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)concentrate better

Parents, friends, and family are the most influential to youth participation in outdoor activities, so make it a family event!
