Ask the Surgeon General to Suggest Kids Spend More Time Outdoors

Americans are spending less time outside than ever before, and it's contributing to a decreased understanding of and appreciation for the natural world. Studies show that a "green hour" a day, where children have time for unstructured play and interaction with the natural world, helps increase a person's connection to the environment, in addition to providing numerous mental and physical health benefits.
