把孩子和自然联系起来

For decades the 国家野生动物联盟 has worked to connect children and youth with nature, 鼓励孩子们通过 Ranger Rick® 杂志, working with educators to get kids learning outdoors, and helping parents find new ways to engage their children outside.

Today the amount of time kids spend outside is alarmingly low—only minutes per day—while screen time is at an all-time high. 澳门金沙总站 has set a new goal to stem the tide and move kids back outdoors.

Our three-year goal is to get 21 million American children, 青少年, and young adults out of their indoor habitat and into the great outdoors. This goal propels us toward a future in which all kids spend time outside each day, 创造更快乐的一代, healthier children with more awareness and connection to the natural world.

Encouraging kids of all ages to spend time every day discovering the wonders of our world

澳门金沙总站’s Green Hour program is designed to encourage parents, 学校, 儿童保育中心, 公园的机构, 营地, 爷爷奶奶, and others to adopt a goal of one hour each day for children to play and learn outdoors in nature.

为什么要有绿色时间?

The idea of a "Green Hour" comes from research on creative play and health by the Centers for Disease Control and the Academy of America Pediatrics. Research also shows the best way to connect young people to a lifelong concern for nature, 野生动物, and the outdoors is through regular positive experiences.

让孩子们到户外去从未像现在这样重要过. 这就是澳门金沙总站和L合作的原因.L.Bean to provide kids and families with safe, fun, and easy activities to do outdoors. Each week we will provide new activities for connecting kids to nature—from creating a nature notebook to becoming a 野生动物 detective, 用树叶做创意, 大自然的机会无穷无尽.
