Take a Child Outside Week
Take a Child Outside Week (Sept. 24-30) is an annual program that encourages people all over the world, particular children, to participate in outdoor activities.
Organizations and the public are invited to participate in Take a Child Outside Week, an annual, internet-facilitated program that encourages people all over the world (particularly children) to participate in outdoor activities.
This program is designed to help break down obstacles that keep children from discovering the natural world. By equipping parents, teachers and other caregivers with resources on outdoor activities, our goal is to help children across the country develop a better understanding and appreciation of the environment in which they live, and a burgeoning enthusiasm for its exploration.
