Rediscover Outdoor Adventure This Summer
If you’ve ever felt stress, tension, and fatigue magically seem to fade away after stepping outside on a beautiful day, you’re not alone.
Research suggests spending time outdoors comes with a variety of health benefits, especially for children. In particular, studies show children who spend more time outdoors have lower rates of childhood obesity, diabetes, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorders.
Unfortunately, a loss of natural outdoor play spaces, increased time with electronic media, and even a desire to keep children safe may mean children and families are spending less time outdoors than ever before.
At Mercer Botanic Gardens, we’re dedicated to getting families outside to rediscover nature and the outdoors together. Let’s explore what outdoor activities can do for you and your family.
