A new online group from the National Wildlife Federation helps with raising children of the digital age to love nature.
The NWF recently launched Wildlife Nation, which people can join to exchange ideas about connecting children with nature. Features of the site include information about wildlife, tips for outdoor activities, and a chance to engage with others who want to make sure children have access to the natural world.
It's good to see the Internet being used to foster more interaction with the environment instead of keeping kids inside. For more information about Wildlife Nation, read the NWF blog post about it here or visit the Web site here.
Just like anything else in raising children, getting outside is all about collective wisdom.
