I live in one of the most beautiful areas…the Pacific North West! It is breathtaking at almost anytime of year around here. Whether it is sunny, rainy, snowy, there is beauty all around. I may be a little spoiled but I cannot imagine a life without the great outdoors, Nature Walks, Fresh Air and it’s Beautiful Parks!
I’m super excited to be sharing with you about the important work that The Trust for Public Land is doing to help preserve and keep our parks available and beautiful for us to use for generations to come. You can help The Trust for Public Land as they work with communities nationwide to save the places people love—from neighborhood playgrounds to vast wilderness.
When my kids were younger I don’t think I would have survived without being able to get outside and go to the Park. We didn’t have much money and going to the park was like going to an amusement park as far as my kids were concerned. (of course they didn’t know the difference either!) It didn’t cost a penny except gas to get there.
So many memories made hiking through the woods, finding all kinds of natural living things. Collecting…oh collecting is so much fun!
The outdoors is part of God’s creation! Can you imagine not knowing all about God’s creation? How the trees help to clean the air? How the leaves cover the ground and keep it fertile when they fall to the ground like a blanket? Yes these are the things that keep our spirits in awe.
We need to teach our kids of these important discoveries!
My grown kids still love nature and hiking even now as they’ve grown older. So now it is time to have fun and teach the next generation about the great outdoors! My grandkids and I went on a Nature Walk yesterday at one of our many favorite local parks. We had so much fun!
It’s easy to forget the awe and wonder of the outdoors until you go on a nature walk with kids because they are fascinated with so many things! Going on our walk only instilled in me more and reminded me how much I love the outdoors! You never know what you may discover! We stumbled upon this teepee like structure that someone had built out of big ol branches!
Of course each new discovery brings about a new adventure! A new activity… my grandson wanted to know if this was an outhouse! Umm nope! He’s so funny. This structure created more climbing and bouncing fun for both kids!
When we were done bouncing, climbing, stomping, running, discovering…it was time to say goodbye to the teepee and head on over to the climbing toys before it was time to go home and have a snack.
We had a fantastic time. You don’t have to have a lot of money to go to the amusement park because Public Parks are even better. Yep Nature Walks, Fresh Air and Parks are what it really takes to be happy and healthy.
If you would like to share your precious park adventures The Trust for Public Land would love for you to create a photo post card, share your story and join the movement to protect #OurLand—now and for generations to come! Here’s mine!
