Freezing temperatures. Inches of snow. Slushy sidewalks. Long, cold winter months–with their short daytime hours–can make it challenging for anyone, let along busy families to stay connected with the outdoors.

It’s just as important during the winter as it is in summer to take in the fresh air and connect with nature. Nature can help your child or children learn, stay healthy and happy.
