Celebrating the Future of Conservation: The Success of Spring 2023 Kids in Nature Day Events
Ranger Rick led the way, and thousands of kids across the state were able to take part in a Kids in Nature Day event hosted or sponsored by an NCWF Chapter.
One of NCWF’s goals as an organization is to enhance and expand opportunities for youth and adults that foster awareness and appreciation of wildlife and the important role healthy habitat plays in sustaining wildlife and humanity. Kids in nature events take this goal to heart and offer children AND adults the opportunity to personally connect and interact with nature which we hope will inspire future environmental stewards.
The impact of a Kids in Nature Day event is evident to most. Overlooking a sea of adults and children engaging in fun nature-related activities with committed conservationists from various organizations is a sight to behold and a reminder of why we do what we do. It’s a rare moment of genuine fellowship and camaraderie built on the foundation of developing the next generation of conservationists that will carry on the mission to protect, conserve and restore North Carolina wildlife and habitat.
