New Study Shows that Parents Worldwide Agree: Our Kids Need More Nature!

A large study recently revealed that 65% of parents in the United States feel that kids aren't spending enough time outside, and 82% feel that nature is very important to their children’s development.  Here at Mud on Your Feet we agree, and we want to do all we can to get more kids outside, wading in creeks, climbing trees and digging in the garden.  And we want you to join in.  Please share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.  What are your family’s favorite ways to share nature together?  Do you have tips for the rest of us?  What types of resources could we share on this blog to help you?

Read about the study in an article by Sarita Bhargava the Nature Conservancy HERE.
