Help children explore the natural world for an active, healthy, outdoor lifestyle. Spend a Saturday morning with us at NWF’s Hike & Seek™ fundraising event. We encourage families to discover the health benefits of an active childhood experience and aim to inspire your child’s sense of adventure.
Join us in 2013 for fun activity stations on the trail, volunteer naturalists, crafts and so much more! Dates and locations to be determined. Hike & Seek is appropriate for children of all ages, especially toddlers to age 10.
See our page for hiking tips, fun activities and more. You'll have the opportunity to support National Wildlife Federation raise awareness about the health impact of an indoor childhood and raise funds for vital NWF programs that help get kids back outside.
Hike & Seek is part of NWF's special event series from the Be Out There™ movement. Be Out There's mission is to return to the nation's children what they don't even know they’ve lost: their connection to the natural world. Kids today spend twice as much time indoors as their parents did, missing out on the simple pleasures and lasting mental and physical health benefits of daily outdoor time.
Be Out There's practical tools for families, schools and communities make being outdoors a fun, healthy and automatic part of everyday life. By raising awareness, inspiring behavior change and taking action, Be Out There will help get American children and families back outside--where they belong! There's a reason they call it the Great Outdoors. Be Out There.
