Kids in Nature

Kids in Nature At Kids In Nature (KIN), we believe in investing in children, and we believe in the power of nature in igniting positive environmental, social, psychological, spiritual, and health outcomes.
(7)

We want to get kids outside to Learn, Play, & Explore. We aim to share our passion and appreciation for wildlife, environmental respect, and conservation of North Carolina’s natural resources. We want to get all children outside to learn, play, explore, and enjoy the timeless traditions that we have grown love – fishing, gardening, farming, animal raising, wilderness exploration, boating, camping, hiking, hunting, and more.

Mission: To provide hands-on learning and outdoor play experiences that inspire youth to enjoy, appreciate, and respect North Carolina’s natural resources.

Perspective | Kids do not spend nearly enough time outside. Here’s how (and why) to change that.

Time spent in Nature = better school performance, more creativity, higher levels of fitness, more friends, less depression, stronger bones, better sleep, longer lifespan, and improved eyesight. Why wouldn't you want to get your kids outside? National Wildlife Federation #kidsinnature

We have traded green time for screen time — and it has had an effect on children's well-being and development.
