From a Chicago Wilderness Email Blast:
June is Leave No Child Inside Month, and the Chicago Wilderness alliance is celebrating by offering a series of family events featuring lively activities - like catching-and-releasing fish, playing with mud, and building a fort - designed to nurture children's sense of wonder and appreciation for nature and to give parents ideas for fun, outdoor activities their families can enjoy on an ongoing basis.
One of the greatest gifts you can give your children is a love of nature. Come out to a Leave No Child Inside Month event and rediscover with your family the joy and wonder of outdoor exploration! Note: Please call or visit the host organization's web site before heading out to an event, particularly in case of inclement weather.
