Lori Milligan of Regina Public Schools, Nick Forsberg of the University of Regina, and Lacey Weekes of Nature Saskatchewan join us to talk about kids and nature:

  • why they need it
  • why they’re not getting it
  • what we can do get more kids active outdoors

They talk about:

  • the growing gap between kids and nature
  • how we all benefit when kids spend time outdoors
  • what schools, communities and families can do to make a difference
  • how organizations like Nature Saskatchewan and the Regina Board of Education can help

We also discuss Brett & Kate McKay’s post: How to Get Your Kids to Love Nature (Even if You Live in the Burbs) and the idea that nature is not “something out there – something far away and a little inaccessible. It’s all around us and it’s free.
