Take a Child Outside Week 2014

“Take A Child Outside” is a program designed to encourage children and adults to spend time together outdoors. By giving parents, grandparents, and teachers information about outdoor activities and places to go, this program helps children develop a better understanding and appreciation of the environment and an enthusiasm for exploring the natural world

LEARN NC is proud to be a partner in “Take a Child Outside Week” which runs September 24th through September 30th annually. We provide instructional resources for educators to use to connect students to nature. There are partner organizations all over North Carolina and the United States offering activities for exploring the outdoors.

“Take a Child Outside” is an initiative of the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and held in cooperation with partner organizations worldwide. For more information, contact Liz Baird, Director of Education at 919-707-9893.
