Growing Up Wild

Connecting Kids to Nature



All the fun happens outside! Birds sing, clouds move across the sky, water ripples in the wind, critters crawl around, wildlife roam, and our senses come to life. Plus, when kids spend time outside, they’re happier, healthier and smarter. Yet, children are spending significantly less outside than online. A new Disney survey reveals parents consider that a “very serious” problem. Stories in our “Growing up Wild” feature will inspire you to head out the door to explore.
