50 Ways to Go Explore Nature in Your Own Backyard

~:: Go Explore Nature ::~

In case you haven’t heard, spending time outside is good for you. Among other things, being in nature helps kids develop a sense of wonder, self, independence and a connection to the planet. Unfortunately, today’s kids aren’t doing it nearly enough.

The good news is that exploring the great outdoors doesn’t have to be limited to hiking, camping or heading to the mountains for a weekend getaway (though those are all fine ideas). Connecting with nature is as simple as heading out the back door. Why not try one of these ideas in your very own yard?
