We are working with Littleton partners, organizations, and community members to envision a community-wide strategy to enhance outdoor, nature-based play opportunities for kids and families of all ages.
Our Early Childhood Health Outdoors (ECHO) team received a planning grant to convene Littleton partners and identify opportunities to improve access to natural outdoor play spaces for children and families.
Over the past year, we have engaged with Littleton partners and organizations to learn more about current and past nature play efforts, and facilitate discussions around what nature play looks like in Littleton. We have also engaged with community members about what they would like to see in their outdoor spaces in Littleton.
We want to continue to listen to and learn from the Littleton community as we support the planning and implementation of nature play projects in Littleton public spaces.
We are beginning to develop multiple pilot nature play projects for 2022. Let us know if you’d like to stay involved, and learn ways to connect with this work! Be a thought partner, participate in a workshop, volunteer! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to stay up to date with our work in Littleton.
We also continue to welcome your input on how to make nature more accessible to kids, families, and educators. Please consider taking our surveys below!
