The importance of children connecting with nature

Introducing children to the great outdoors is about more than just building extraordinary memories. Clyde Butcher and other nature proponents say benefits include:

• Time outdoors can equal happiness.

• Time outdoors makes children healthier.

• Time outdoors makes children better stewards of the earth.

“Sometimes, in the abstract, it’s difficult to understand why nature is so important,” Butcher says. “But when children step into it, and see it firsthand, they can fall in love with it. Then they begin to understand.”

Oklahoma has so much to explore. I recommend checking out the road trip guide on TravelOK to plan your next family outing.
