“Why are Canadian kids keeping their Outside Shoes on this Fall?”

Thousands of kids will be exploring nature in their neighbourhoods
with the David Suzuki Foundation’s four-week Fall Family Challenge

Today the David Suzuki
Foundation launched the Fall Family Challenge, a national campaign aimed
at getting kids (and their parents) outside this fall through a series
of four fun weekly challenges.

For the second year, the David Suzuki Foundation is holding a Fall
Family Challenge that will see thousands of families across the country
exploring nature in their backyards and beyond. They will be learning
how they are connected to the environment and how their actions affect
it.

“During the busy back-to-school season, it’s easy to forget about
spending time outside,” said said project lead Rachelle Delaney. “There’s no better time to
cultivate a family nature habit.”

Starting September 16, participants will receive weekly emails
containing fun outdoor activities, instructions and tips. Throughout the
weeks, they can connect to the Foundation’s Facebook, Twitter and
Instagram accounts for stories, photos and tips from families across
Canada.

Families can find out more and sign up for the Fall Family Challenge at www.getbackoutside.ca.

*Note to Young Naturalists’ Club of BC members:  You can use your participation in this Fall Family Challenge towards your  YNC Action Award program.*
