Wildlife Explorers Program: Creating Environmental Likeability through Park and Recreation Programming

In recent years researchers, parents and educators have noticed an alarming trend: kids are spending more and more time indoors and less time outside. Outdoor, nature-based experiences are critically important for the development and care of healthy minds and bodies. In this session you'll hear from park and recreation peers about implementing NRPA's newest nature discovery program, Wildlife Explorers, and how anyone - whether they've had nature programming experience or not - can implement it in their afterschool or summer programs. The presenters will be Lindsay Glasner, K-12 Outreach Coordinator at Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Mary Rapoza and Alexandrea Matthews, of New Bedford Parks Recreation & Beaches, and Lori Robertson, NRPA Director of Conservation.
