At any time, when youth are outside on their own, or with families and friends, everyone should take safety precautions and be mindful of risks.

— Bill Schneider, NewWest.Net “Concerns about long-term consequences—affecting emotional well-being, physical health, learning abilities,
environmental consciousness—have spawned a national movement to ‘leave no child inside.’ In recent months, it has been the focus of Capitol Hill hearings, state legislative action, grassroots projects, a U.S. Forest Service initiative to get more children into the woods and a national effort to promote a ‘green hour’ in each day.”
— Washington Post “The movement to reconnect children to the natural world has arisen quickly, spontaneously, and across the usual social, political, and economic dividing lines.”
