Kids these days spend over 7 hours per day with electronic media. We spend less and less time in the outdoors and at what expense. The benefits of outdoor play and recreation have been well documented. Young people who spend time outdoors are Smarter, Healthier and Happier.
The Natural Resources Commission Youth Advisory Council is working to encourage both young and old to spend more time outdoors. We ask that you join us in rededicating ourselves to playing in the outdoors and working to protect the precious heritage that we have been given.
