Many childhood moments in the great outdoors remain reassuringly timeless in a rapidly changing world: Skipping stones across the water. Turning over a log to see what insects live underneath. Roasting the perfect marshmallow for s’mores. Telling ghost stories by the campfire. Finding the Big Dipper in a dark night sky.
Sharing experiences with kids in our country’s great outdoors connects generations of Americans from the past, present, and future. In a world where parents and kids are often stressed and overloaded, our public lands and waters offer a ready antidote. These are the places where families can go camping, walk hiking trails, watch wildlife, catch fish, play baseball, learn about history, or just breathe a little more easily.
In an increasingly digitized and connected world, children stand to benefit more than ever from the reliable investment in conservation that the Land and Water Conservation Fund was designed to provide.
