We understand that getting outside can help our families thrive and make us happier, healthier people. But where do we start? For many, getting kids outside and away from their smartphones can be challenging – especially when you’re competing with television shows and the thrill of “likes” on Instagram.
But here’s the thing: nature and technology do not need to compete for your family’s attention. There are plenty of ways to get outside without tearing your teen away from the screen. Smartphones and the internet can be used to facilitate meaningful and fun outdoor experiences.
This activity guidebook will help families do just that: get outside and play on our National Forests, all while harnessing the latest and greatest digital technology.
