Inspiration Monday: Discover a forest near you

Use outdoor voices only. Get your shoes muddy. Please run.

These are just a few “rules” from DiscoverTheForest.org, which has produced this great video to inspire kids to get out into nature. Says the narrator:

“Imagine a place where you can be different… or just be yourself. Where you can be silly and muddy, or thoughtful and curious. It’s not very far away, so get out and explore. There might just be another you, one you’ve never met before. You’ll find yourself out here—in our forests and parks. This is where the other you lives.”

In recognition of Children & Nature Awareness Month, get out there and discover a forest near you!
