New York Botanical Garden Funds Project to 'Get Kids Out in Nature’
3rd June 2007
A $1.5 million “Kids in the Woods” environmental education programme aims to see children from across the United States reconnecting with nature this summer, by abandoning their ipods and PlayStations in favour of nature trails and birdwatching.
Supported by the New York Botanical Garden, this project is designed to tackle the increasing detachment of US children from the natural environment. This ‘lack of direct experience’ of nature has been linked by experts to the growing problems of attention deficit disorder, childhood obesity and even type two diabetes.
