September 24th-30th is International Take A Child Outside Week! In honor of nature exploration and the many benefits that children receive through enriching outdoor play, we invite parents, grandparents and guardians of children ages 18 months – 4 years old to enjoy a FREE event at the Environmental Learning Center in Vero Beach, Florida on Wednesday, September 25th from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. 


Activities include an interactive story time, nature craft, pond dip-netting and water exploration, and access to the ELC’s Discovery Station museum and touch tank. Adults will also receive take-home information on the importance of outdoor nature exploration and play, along with suggested outside activities that can be enjoyed with their children, and a free scavenger hunt printout.

Take A Child Outside Week is an international initiative created by The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, and inspired by Richard Louv’s award winning book, Last Child in the Woods.
