Children and Nature Network - The Children & Nature Network (C&NN) was created to encourage and support the people and organizations working nationally and internationally to reconnect children with nature. The network provides a critical link between researchers and individuals, educators and organizations dedicated to children's health and well-being.
Kids in Parks - Kids in Parks works with partners throughout the country to increase the physical activity of children and their families, improve nutritional choices and connect kids to nature. Their TRACK Trails program may be of particular interest to Corps lakes, where they take existing trails and turn them into designated hiking TRACK Trails or Nature Trail Disc Golf Course TRACK Trails. TRACK Trail adventures are designed to help kids explore nature through the use of self-guided brochures. Within the pages of each brochure a different story unfolds. From Nature's Relationships to Fern Identification, each adventure will help build connections to the natural world.
