Webinar: Bringing the Outdoors Back "In" - Reconnecting Families with Nature

American author Richard Louv's influential book Last Child in the Woods has ignited action globally to reconnect children and families with the natural world. Parks and Recreation Ontario is pleased to offer a 60-minute webinar on reconnecting families with nature.

In this webinar, learn about the science behind Louv's book, including research that shows why being active in nature can help reduce obesity, improve overall physical and mental health and significantly contribute to personal wellbeing. You'll come away armed with resources and practical tools that will help you and your community.

This webinar will take place on November 30th at 1 pm. All that is needed to participate is a computer, phone and internet connection. This webinar is a great opportunity to learn from the comfort of your own desk.
