PROGRAMS FOR KIDS TO EXPLORE NATURE

 

New programs are available from the University of Illinois to get children out of the house and exploring the wonders of nature. Research has shown a wide range of benefits for children who have contact with nature. Childhood experiences with nature influence adult environmental attitudes and actions. Many youth report a sense of excitement about being outdoors and the desire for more interaction. Conservation days, visits to natural areas led by environmental educators, and day camps are all excellent ways to get children outdoors. For more information, call the Bond County U of I Extension office at 664-3665.
