Children and the great outdoors

In the Fall 2008 issue of Wildlife Insider (National Wildlife Federation newsletter) is an article on children and their relationship with nature; it mentions the No Child Left Inside Act. The article says that America's families have moved indoors, and time spend outdoors has declined by 50% in the last 20 years. Author Richard Louv calls this "nature deficit disorder." The article considers causes and results. For more information: National Wildlife Federation: NWF & Environmental Education
