NWF on Today Show – Be Out There!

from Wildlife Promise

Did you know that by the time the average kid goes to kindergarten, he or she has already watched 5,000 hours of television?  That's enough time to earn a college degree! 

If you think there's something wrong with that picture, you need to make the 2010 Be Out There resolution and get the kids in your life outside this year.  It's all about reversing the "indoor kid" trend, with all of its negative consequences, and getting kids back outside playing and connecting with nature. 

After you've made the resolution, check out the video clip of my appearance on the Today Show yesterday.  I got to talk all about the great health benefits of playing outside while I shared some awesome backyard wildlife.  See you outside!
