The Children & Nature Network (C&NN) publishes Nature Clubs for Families Tool Kit: Do It Yourself! Do It Now! to provide inspiration, information, tips and resources for those who are-or who might be-interested in creating a Nature Club for Families. In creating the Tool Kit, we've drawn on what many other families have done and learned. We also encourage you to develop and use your own ideas.
Families are discovering that having fun outdoors doesn't require waiting for a special event or program. Instead, they are taking the initiative and creating their own local nature clubs for families. These clubs go by different names and take slightly different forms, but they all offer accessible, easy, low- (or no-) cost fun, family-oriented activities outdoors.
The good news is that there are lots of ways to connect with nature-and to create lifestyles in which frequent experience in the natural world is a fundamental part of children's lives. The Children & Nature Network (C&NN) has drawn on the best available research, common sense, and parents' direct experiences to develop this C&NN Nature Clubs for Families Tool Kit: Do It Yourself! Do It Now! We hope it inspires you to get your own family and friends outdoors for many happy, healthy adventures together.
