Please join us for our Annual Summit on Saturday, October 26th as we convene national and international leaders in outdoor play and learning.
The third annual Early Childhood Health Outdoors (ECHO) Summit will offer presentations by leading professionals in the fields of conservation, and early childhood education, and outdoor hands-on activities showcasing innovative ideas and concepts participants can implement in their own settings.
During this full-day event at Denver Botanic Gardens, participants will learn innovative ways to support curiosity in naturalized outdoor play environments, see examples of how the designed environment engages children in imaginative outdoor play and gain a deeper understanding of the many ways outdoor activity supports healthy development.
Participants will learn the value of naturalized outdoor play, how to engage young children outdoors, and how small changes in the outdoor environment can lead to lasting impacts on children and families. We invite child care providers, directors, coaches, child care health consultants, early childhood council staff, environmental educators, landscape designers, and interested community members to attend our third annual ECHO Summit.
