Earlier this year President Obama unveiled a new, community-driven conservation and recreation agenda for America’s Great Outdoors. Shaped by an unprecedented national conversation, including listening sessions across the country, the agenda lays out a plan to better protect America’s water, wild lands, wildlife and important landmarks. It also calls for a strong effort to reconnect children, youth and families with the great outdoors.
The Sierra Club is answering that call this month as we work with the Children and Nature Network and other partners to support events urging people of all ages to get outdoors and experience nature. Over 500 events are registered so far and they all encourage people to play, serve and celebrate America’s Great Outdoors.
