This is a great program. The marketing company I work for is doing a campaign for the Ad council and I read recently that they did a study which stated that kids spend 50% less time outdoors than they did 20 years ago.

The Forest Service is embarking on a campaign called "Where the Other You Lives" which is trying to get kids outdoors as well. They have a series of PSAs as well as a website designed to show the benefits of getting to know nature.

The website can be found here:

The U.S. Forest service has updated their campaign "Where the Other You Lives". They now have a contest to reward kids who depict their experiences in nature.

The rewards for doing this will be north face gift cards for the children's families!
