Welcome to NH Children in Nature Coalition!
If you believe New Hampshire children and families should spend more time outdoors and want ideas to get your family or students outside, you've come to the right place.
The NH Children in Nature Coalition was formed in response to research that shows kids are spending less time outside than ever before and that this 'nature deficit" is having significant impacts on physical and mental development and health. The coalition strives to get children and families back outdoors to explore the natural world by providing information, ideas and support.
You can generate postive change here in NH. Start with your family then encourage neighbors, schools and communities to get outdoors.
Doctors: Write a prescription for Nature for your patients.
Follow us on Facebook to stay up on family friendly outdoor events.
Coalition includes members from NH State Parks, NH Fish & Game, Moultonborough Parks & Recreation Dept., Lebanon Recreation and Parks Department, Beaver Brook Association, Squam Lakes Natural Science Center, NH Project Learning Tree & NH Parks & Recreation Association
