Description
Nature plays a critical role in child development and our emotional and psychological well-being. It is essential that professionals focus their attention on infusing nature back into children's everyday free play environments to create healthier, happier childhoods. This webinar will provide research-based solutions to reconnect children and families with the natural world through compelling case examples that attract users, promote physical activity, and demonstrate strategies to capture the culture, heritage, and dreams of communities.
