Take a Child Outside Week runs from today, September 24, to next Wednesday, September 30. Take a Child Outside Weed is a program designed to help break down obstacles that keep children from discovering the natural world. By arming parents, teachers and other caregivers with resources for outdoor activities, their goal is to help children across the country develop a better understanding and appreciation of the environment in which they live, and a burgeoning enthusiasm for its exploration.

USEE is one of them, and so is Wasatch Community Gardens, one of our Institutional Members. Be a part of this national movement!
