Memorial Day celebrations are wrapping up, signaling the unofficial beginning of summer! That means school is out and now the fun challenge of keeping kids occupied (without a screen) is here. Did you know that spending time in nature is great for kids and adults and can improve health? There are lots of inexpensive ways to spend time outside whether you are a seasoned naturalist or a newbie, and you don’t even have to leave the area.
Most of you are probably aware of options like the Henry Doorly Zoo and Lauritzen Botanical Gardens, but LiveGreen would like you to know there are LOTS of options in and around this area: hiking, biking, fishing, bird watching, trains, camping, relaxing, there’s something for everyone. Everything below is linked to easily allow you to find details and make plans for your weekends or staycations (and some have day camps for kids and teens):
Have fun and enjoy your summer!
