FREE webinar: Children and Nature: Perfect for Afterschool!

NJSACC : The Network for  New Jersey’s Afterschool Communities is in the 3rd year of the campaign, Celebrate Afterschool! Outdoors in the Garden State.

The past 3 years  NJSACC has worked with afterschool programs  to connect children and nature through innovative afterschool programming.
Our organization believes that afterschool programs can serve as a major change agent in halting “Nature Deficit Disorder” in youth.

Learn about the  free user-friendly toolkit that  includes activities to engage kids in science/ nature based experiences and discusses their roles as stewards of the environment. Learn how to form partnerships  with nature serving organizations in your community to re-engage children with nature.

NJSACC works closely with the national organization, Children and Nature Network and its’ founder, Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods.
