Children in Nature

Supporting the Rights of All Maryland's ChildrenTo Play and Learn Outdoors 

The Children in Nature Partnership began in 2008. Since then the 21-member public and private partnership has worked collaboratively to provide opportunities for children to play and learn outdoors.

Among the Partnership's many achievements was the adoption of statewide Environmental Literacy Standards for public education in Maryland.

Also supporting this mission are Maryland's Natural Play Spaces - both public and private.

The Children in Nature Partnership  continues to evolve, with a new emphasis on the effects of outdoor experiences on the health of our children.
