Spring heralds the beginning of the outdoors season but despite the demonstrated positive effects that nature has on kids, many children remain glued to screens or stuck inside prepping for yet another standardized exam. Will it always be "heads in tech"? Or will it also be "feet on the ground"? If children are not given opportunities to connect with the natural world, who will be the stewards of the future?
