Bring Children and Nature Together!

Child enjoying nature.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 is committed to reversing.  The links below offer ideas on how you can introduce a child to Mother Nature.  Check out our Field Guides for children, too!

Pathways to Nature for Kids

Developed in partnership with National Audubon Society and the National Wildlife Federation, Pathways To Nature for Kids gives children from across North America the opportunity to connect with their natural world.  Learn about opportunities for kids to visit Audubon Summer Camps, try some of the suggested Activities, discover amazing facts with the Bird of the Month, and more.

National Wildlife Federation's Green Hour

Green Hour is a program of the National Wildlife Federation designed to help you give children a "Green Hour" every day where, with a bit of time for unstructured play and interaction with the natural world, we can set them on the path toward physical, mental, and emotional well-being. And at GREENHOUR.ORG, you'll find inspiration and ideas to do just that. Each week, they publish a fresh issue full of activities and information to help guide the exploration and focus on fun. Blogs and forums allow parents to share ideas with each other.

Bird Watcher's Digest Young Birders

A great way to get kids interested in birding, this site is designed by young birders, for young birders!  Kids can learn how to use binoculars and field guides, how to find birds, how to identify birds, plus they can take a pop quiz, and submit and get their questions answered.  There is a section for parents, with tips on how to get kids involved with birds.
