Webinar: NWF's 10 Million Kids Outdoors Challenge! 

KidsinTree_FotoliaJoin the revolution to bring back the outdoors to kids' daily lives! Today, the amount of time kids spend outside is alarmingly low--only minutes per day--while screen time is at an all-time high (upwards of seven hours). NWF has set a new goal to stem the tide and move kids back outdoors. Our three-year goal is to get 10 million more American children out of the indoor habitat and into the great outdoors. This goal propels us toward a future when all kids spend time outside each day, creating a generation of happier, healthier children with more awareness and connection to the natural world. Join the 10 Milion Kids Outdoors webinar to to learn more
