Kansans for Children in Nature

Governor Kathleen Sebelius signed an Executive Order on 13 April 2009 establishing the Kansas Coalition for Children and Nature.  The Coalition is charged with identifying barriers and recommending ways to get more kids outside.  Ten Convening Organizations lead the Coalition, and three Working Groups have been formed.  If you would like to be involved, please contact one of the Working Group Leaders:

Environmental Education:  Laura Downey, ldowney@kacee.org

Outdoor Experiences and Recreation:  Doug Vance, doug@krpa.org

Health:  Laura Downey, ldowney@kacee.org

The group is now known as Kansans for Children in Nature.  Check back soon for a link to the group's website.
