Today’s youth spend less time outside than any previous generation, depriving themselves of the emotional and physical benefits that come from having a bond with the natural world. Rather than “going green,” children are “going screen,” spending an average of 44 hours per week interacting with electronic media. This is a trend Wild Birds Unlimited is committed to reversing with its Pathways To Nature for Kids initiative.
Developed in partnership with National Audubon Society, Pathways To Nature for Kids gives children from across North America the opportunity to connect with their natural world.
Since 2007, Wild Birds Unlimited® has proudly teamed with the National Audubon Society to provide more than 2000 children with scholarships to attend summer camps across the country. Wild Birds Unlimited scholarship eligibility is determined by each Audubon Center. For more information on details about general registration, camp programs and scholarships visit the Audubon website.
Wild Birds Unlimited is dedicated to reconnecting children with the outdoors as part of our mission to bring people and nature together.
