Community Action Guide to Reconnect Children to Nature
Hands-on tool for organizers to reconnect children and nature with community programs
Children & Nature Network has published two new resources for leaders, organizers, and participants at the local, national, and international levels of reconnecting children with nature.
C&NN Community Action Guide
The Action Guide is a hands-on tool for organizers in the field for designing and implementing initiatives to reconnect children and nature. Written especially for regional leaders, the guide covers each step toward success. The first section provides a road map for engaging a community. The next section shows organizers how to create a viable strategic plan. The final section covers the process of implementation. A sample timeline for groups to follow and information on working together and achieving consensus are also included.

Children and Nature 2008
This report serves as a tool for those who care deeply about the importance of reconnecting children with nature. The report includes a history of the children and nature movement and then makes the case for the many positive benefits to children when outdoor play is part of their everyday lives. Subsequent sections look at the direction of the movement and the barriers to it; the motivating interests and values of different categories of parents; ideas for the future of the movement; and the progress of the movement around the globe.
