Finding balance in our busy lives is often a challenge. Prying the remote, iPod, Nintendo DS or other gadgets out of our children's hands is even harder! That's why I am inviting everyone who can, to attend this Saturday's 'Listening Session' on the President's Great Outdoors Initiative.
This is an incredible opportunity to talk directly to Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar and other top administration officials about the ways our communities are using outdoor spaces and how our Federal Government can better partner to reconnect people—especially children-- to the outdoors.
Farming, community gardens, neighborhood parks, camping—what gets you and your family outside and why is this important? What are barriers to getting outdoors? What are outdoor projects that engage our history and culture? How can we advance job and volunteer opportunities related to the outdoors? Those are the questions we need YOU to answer.
There are two sessions—one for youth and the other for the general public (youth are encouraged to stay and participate!)
