Why is C&NN promoting FamilyNature Blogs?
The Children & Nature Network hosts theWorldwide Family Nature BlogNet to connectmembers o the international movement to eachother and inspire amilies around the world toget outside and “make a memory” together.Beyond programs and legislation, our ultimategoal is deep cultural change, connecting childrento nature, so that they can be happier, healthierand smarter.Many young parents and young teachers did not,when they were children, enjoy the experiencesin nature o previous generations. Even i theyrecognize the health and learning benefts onature play, and even i they want to makesure their children and their students have thatexperience, they very oten don’t know where tostart. Family Nature Blogs can oer a road map.
“We were inspired to createthis blognet by all o the greatamily nature blogs that are alreadyout there – when you see them alltogether it’s so clear that a culturalshit is underway and reading theseand getting inspired to do your ownis just one more way to movethe movement.

How will blogging help grow theChildren and Nature Movement?
Blogging is about sharing and connecting.Everyone has a story to tell. Blogging lets youtell your story and share it with riends, amily,community members, and people aroundthe world!Many young amilies would like to spend moretime outside in nature, but they don’t knowwhere to go or what to do. Seeing where youand your amily go and what you do will helpothers see how simple it is and how manydierent opportunities lie just outside the door!
