Bringing Kids and Nature Together
Today’s youth spend less time outside than any previous generation, depriving themselves of the emotional and physical benefits that come from having a bond with the natural world. Rather than “going green,” children are “going screen,” spending an average of 44 hours per week interacting with electronic media.
This is a trend Wild Birds Unlimited would like to reverse. Connecting children and nature has important health benefits. Studies show outdoor time helps children grow lean and strong, enhances imaginations and attention spans, decreases aggression, and boosts classroom performance. In addition, children who spend time in nature regularly are shown to become better stewards of the environment.
Wild Birds Unlimited is dedicated to reconnecting children with the outdoors as part of our mission to bring people and nature together.
