Organizer

NH Children in Nature Coalition

The NH Children in Nature Coalition was formed in response to recent research that shows kids are spending less time outside than ever before and that this “nature deficit” is having significant negative impacts on physical and mental development. The coalition strives to get children and families back outdoors to explore the natural world by providing information, ideas and support. For more information visit our website at http://www.nhchildreninnature.org/.
