Can Twitter and Facebook Help Connect People With Nature?

The National Wildlife Federation is connecting people with nature — through the Internet.

Sounds paradoxical, doesn’t it?

It’s true. With just a few mouse clicks and key presses, we are raising awareness about the importance of outdoor time. Hopefully, with our gentle reminders, people will find the time to unplug and have a Green Hour.

Recently, our social media coordinator, Danielle Brigida (@starfocus), sent a single question out to our Twitter followers and Facebook fans:

Too many people today miss out on these kind of memories. Inspire others by sharing some of your own childhood memories with @NWF, @starfocus, or on our Facebook page.
