Communities Win When Kids Connect With Nature
Jun 4, 2010 Posted by Dawn Merritt
This week the Izaak Walton League helped launch the Outdoors Alliance for Kids (OAK), a national strategic partnership of organizations with a common interest in expanding opportunities for children, youth, and families to connect with the outdoors.
The members of OAK share the belief that the well-being of our children, the health of our communities, and the future of our economy all depend on personal, life-long relationships with nature and the outdoors.
Izaak Walton League chapters offer many opportunities to build those relationships, and the League is working this year to provide additional resources to our chapters to expand our youth programming.
Looking for ways to connect families in your community with the great outdoors this summer? Read "10 Ways To Attract Youth To Your Chapter" and download a few of the League’s “How To” articles to kick things off.
