As the former Project Advisor for Teens for Planet Earth and Program Coordinator of Girls for Planet Earth, I thoroughly enjoyed working with the Wildlife Conservation Society for seven years. Now I'm setting a new goal: to help children of all ages and their families spend more time outside, reaping the many benefits that nature has to offer.
People who regularly spend time outside are happier, healthier, and even smarter
than those who do not. More and more research is showing that contact with nature is necessary for healthy development in children as well as the physical, mental, and emotional health of both children and adults. So... get outside!
