If you follow me on Twitter, it’s no secret that I have a bit of a crush on @Cheecker, my squirrely friend from the US Forest Service.
Tomorrow (June 12th, 2010), Cheecker and I and people across the USA will be celebrating National Get Outdoors Day!
Come and join us!
You’ll find lots of great tips and ideas at their website, Discover the Forest.
Explore the site to find:
- A “nature finder” zip code tool to help you find the nearest forest, park or nature sanctuary
- Lots of fun online games that will teach parents and kids interesting things about nature, like how to identify wildlife tracks or use a compass
- Tips for parents on how to help get their kids outside and enjoying nature, including an activity book of activities to do when out in nature
As if you need more incentive — Shrek thinks connecting with nature is cool, too!
So, head outside and celebrate this great big beautiful world of ours.
Cheecker and I will be waiting for you.
See ya outside! ~ The Grass Stain Guru
