Children

A child who has tracked barefoot through knee-deep mud, who has climbed trees and foraged for wild berries, is a child who will grow to be healthier and more active, who will better understand the world we live in, and who will learn to face it with confidence.

But Canadian kids are spending more time indoors in front of screens than ever before, and the consequences—soaring obesity rates, mental health problems, a decline in empathy and a diminished sense of community—are impossible to ignore. The natural world offers children a chance to learn and to engage their senses, to explore and to discover their surroundings, and to challenge their minds and bodies.  Evergreen offers a wide range of programs and initiatives that invite young Canadians to discover nature first-hand—at their schools, in their communities and at home with their families.
