Create an Outdoor Family Tradition
Starting a meaningful family tradition is one great way to teach kids about the environment. Volunteering and exploring the great outdoors are just two ideas you might consider.
Learn new skills at a family farm
Pick a volunteer activity
Establish a family hiking route
Involve kids in the yearly planting
There are almost two million farms in the USA – most of them small, family-owned farms – and you can find farms to visit with the family on sites like LocalHarvest.org. If you just want to start a “pick-your-own” tradition, look for local farms at PickYourOwn.org.
