Spend an Hour Outside (Green Hour!)

Spend an hour outside every day and revist why we must work to protect all that is  around us.  Following the example of NWF's Green Hour Program-- www.greenhour.org
As a society, we are raising the first generation of Americans to grow up disconnected from nature. That's the bad news.

The good news is that the steps that got us here are easily traced, and the way to work toward reversing them is clear. Most importantly, by giving our children and ourselves a "Green Hour" a day -- a bit of time for unstructured play and interaction with the natural world -- we can set them on the path toward physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Take the time,it is just an hour outside,  we could all use the fresh air!

      Better still, I pledge to spend an hour outside with a child!  Lead by example and find your inner child.  Instill the love of the outdoors in our children because they will protect that which they treasure.

      I will actually spend more than just one hour every day as usual. I love being in the open to enjoy nature's beautiul provisions. One hour is very little for me!

      Even in the cold and snowy weather, if you dress well and keep active, you can still enjoy being outdoors for an hour. The world has a different beauty when it's covered with snow.

      I live in Tampa, Florida and it's easy to spend time out of doors, even on the hottest, muggiest days!  I planted my second garden this year and to my surprise, it's growing better than my Spring one.  I love being out of doors and enjoying Nature as she was meant to be enjoyed!
