The purpose of this toolkit is to provide inspiration, information, tips and resources for those who are—or who might be—interested in creating a Nature Club for Families. The contents draw from what many families have done and learned about making nature and outdoor activities a part of everyday living. Teaching teams, parents, and families are encouraged to develop and use their own ideas and resources as they use the contents of the toolkit to promote outdoor activities in their own neighborhoods.
"What if parents, grandparents, and kids around the country were to band together to create nature clubs for families? What if this new form of social/nature networking were to spread as quickly as book clubs and Neighborhood Watches did in recent decades? We would be well on our way to true cultural change."
